    Abstract [en]

    Minorities risk being excluded from society and discriminated in different ways. Transexuals is a group who is exposed to these risks not only in society but also in medical attendance. The purpose of this literature review was to elucidate factors affecting the meeting between health professionals and transsexual patients. Transsexuals had difficulty in finding health professionals who respected their gender identity. This resulted in that health care was made inacces-sible. Furthermore this group of patients experienced disinterest from the professionals and this resulted in a lack of their health care needs. When professionals showed respect and empathy for the transsexual, combined with awareness and competence, the treatment was optimal. Discrimination and transphobia against this group of patients were due to inadequate skills, morals and different individual set of values. General health problems of this group of patients were assumed being caused by the patients transsexuali-ty.

    A significant factor was to address the transsexuals by the right pronouns as an impaired quality of care was experienced when wrong pronouns were used during a heath care meeting. The heteronomous view within health care excluded the transsexuals from investigations, treatments and health care availability.

    Lack of prior research has resulted in poorly trained professionals regarding transsexuality. This deficiency occurred both in primary and institutional care. Recent knowledge is based on clinical experience and to a less extent of scientific evidence. This has resulted in that nursing students had an inadequate formal education regarding transgender issues.
