Nurses’ experiences of care encounters with transgender people (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Transgender people are a growing group in society that does not fit into the norms and structures on which the environment is built. Even thoughthe living conditions of transgender people have improved in recent years in the form of the introduction of laws and rights, studies show that they are a vulnerable group who often fall victim to, among other things, violations and discrimination.It is the nurse's responsibility to alleviate suffering and promote health, as well as to work based on laws and ethical codes in order to provide good care.

Aim: To describe nurses' experiences of care encounters with trans people

Method: A literature study of eleven qualitative articles.

Results: The results showed three themes. The first theme was "Emotional collisions", which describe nurses' inner emotional conflict of when they felt a lack of understanding for trans people but at the same time compassion for them. The second theme was "Uncertainty in care" which describes nurses' insecurity when caring for transgender people and their experience of lack of knowledge about this patient group. The last theme, "Fear of insulting the patient" describes nurses' experience of fear of misgendering or objectifying transgender people and their confusion about what the patient's gender identity means.

Conclusion: Nurses experience a need for more knowledge about how to care for transgender patients. The norms need to be changed to include minorities for better inclusion in the healthcare system.
