The Nurses experience of teaching on self-care to patients of foreign background with asthma (English)
Abstract [en]

Asthma disease is a public health problem. The incidence of asthma can vary depending on the patient's ethnicity. There is a risk for patients who have language difficulties with non-Swedish background that do not always tell you about the extent of their problems, and/or to express their symptoms differently and or do not complete their treatments or the recommendations given on self-care. The language barrier can make following self-care advice difficult, even compliance to taking their medicine in a correct fashion. The nurse's perception of the patient lived situation, knowledge and to see the patient as a whole, can increase the nurses' knowledge and compliance in giving relevant information to the patient which he/she understand. This will in turn strengthen the patient's capability to follow advice and complete their prescribed health care regime. Purpose with study was to describe the nurse’s experience of teaching on self-care in patients with non-Swedish background with asthma. The study is based on qualitative method. Sex nurses interviewed in this study January and February 2014 in Gutenberg in Sweden. Inductive qualitative content analysis is used. The Results of this study are presented in three categories: experience of communication on self-care, experience of patient's self-care and experience of follow-up patients. I believe that nurses with a better understanding of patient who have a non-Swedish background can achieve higher compliance from the asthma patient which in turn can lead to effective self-care outcomes
