Experiences of old Iranian patients receiving care from Iranian nurses (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Effective health care requires good communication between the nurses and the patients. Being able to understand patients and to make them understand you are very important to provide the best care to the patients. Health care meeting of elderly patients who are not fluent in Swedish language with nurses who do not speak their language leads to miscommunication which hinders exchange of health care information. The aim of present study was to describe experiences of old Iranian patients receiving care from Iranian nurses in health care encounter. Method: This study used a qualitative approach. For data collection, we used qualitative interviews with open-ended questions. The nine interviews were analyzed by means of content analysis. The result showed that these patients were positive and satisfied with the care that received from Iranian nurses. Being able to communicate and discuss directly with the nurses, patients felt satisfied and would prefer to meet Iranian nurses again when they have health problems. Health care encounters were regarded as inconvenient and time-consuming when the patients were in need of someone else's interpretation. Most participants in this study felt that they met with openness and courtesy of Iranian nurses, which created trust among the patients. Intercultural awareness created a feeling of security and belonging among the patients. Stress and lack of time seemed to be two of the reasons for the negative attitudes and response of Iranian nurses.
