Abstract [sv]

Heteronormativitet styr i dagens samhälle. Inom hälso- och sjukvården har alla rätt till likvärdig och jämlik vård. Det kan dock finnas attityder bland sjuksköterskor som kan bidra till en ojämlik vård för homosexuella personer. Syftet med litteraturstudien var att belysa homosexuella personers erfarenheter av omvårdnad. Litteraturstudien grundades på nio kvalitativa vetenskapliga artiklar och en kvantitativ artikel. Resultatet visade att homosexuella personer upplevde negativa attityder, okunskap och diskriminering inom omvårdnad vilket tog sig olika uttryck. Det ledde till brister i kommunikationen mellan sjuksköterskan och patienten och många homosexuella personer kände att de riskerade att få en sämre vård om de valde att vara öppna med sin sexualitet. Resultatet av detta kunde vara att de undvek sjukvården av rädsla för att bli diskriminerade. Homosexuella personer kunde använda sig av olika strategier i kontakten med sjukvården för att underlätta bemötandet. Homosexuella personer som hade erfarenheter av att ha mött fördomsfria sjuksköterskor ledde till att de kände sig bekräftade och sedda av sjuksköterskan för den de var. Sjuksköterskan kan ha bearbetat sina egna värderingar, vilket har mynnat ut i en värdegrund avseende sexuell identitet för att alla patienter ska få en likvärdig vård. Resultatet av studien kan användas i utbildningen av sjuksköterskestudenter och färdiga sjuksköterskor för att medvetandegöra detta normperspektiv.  

 

Abstract [en]

Heteronormativity prevails in today's society. In the field of healthcare, everyone is entitled to equal care. However, there may be attitudes among nurses who can contribute to unequal care for homosexual persons. The purpose of the literature study was to illustrate homosexual persons´ experiences of nursing. The literature study was based on nine qualitative scientific articles and one quantitative article. The results showed that homosexuals experienced negative attitudes, ignorance and discrimination in nursing, which appeared in different ways. This led to shortcomings in communication between the nurse and the patient and many homosexuals felt that they were at risk of poorer care if they chose to be open with their sexuality. The result of this could be that they avoided the medical care for fear of being discriminated against. Homosexuals could use different strategies in contact with healthcare to facilitate the treatment. Homosexuals who had experiences of meeting nurses without prejudices made them feel confirmed and seen for whom they were. The nurse may have processed her own values, which has resulted in a value base for sexual identity in order to ensure that all patients receive an equal care. The results of the study can be used in the education of nurses and professional nurses to raise awareness of this norm perspective.
