In encounters with health care personal overweight persons experience judgement and stigmatization about their lifestyles, despite the fact that obesity can be a complex problem with many causes. Negative attitudes from health care personal make obese persons feeling judged as well as a hinder to form a caring relationship Aim The aim was to describe overweight and obese adults’ experiences of encounters in health care Method A qualitative based literature review was conducted in this study. Ten qualitative articles was analyzed using Friberg’s five step-method. Two themes and seven subthemes emerged Results Obese persons experienced both powerlessness and power in the care meeting. Often the patient was not believed and listened to, felt no support or trust and was not involved. However, when these factors were met, the patient felt power over his situation. Overweight people's experiences of negative perceptions and the stigma that healthcare professionals have attributed to them often characterized the care meeting. Subthemes who emerged was dehumanization, guilt, obesity as a cause of all problems and lack of respect. These undersigns tend to reduce people together to be merely what the actual stigma symbolizes. Conclusion It is important to highlight the obese patient’s experiences of the encounter between patient and nurse. Moreover, increased knowledge about obesity is needed and how to treat people with this disease in the most respectful way possible
