Foreign-born patients' experiences of the nurse's treatment : A literature review (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Over one and half million of Sweden's population is foreign-born. Given that Sweden has about 9.7 million inhabitants, this means that foreign-born people almost 15%. As nurses, we will therefore meet these patients.

Aim: The aim of the study was to describe the experiences of meeting with the nurse out of the foreign-born patients' perspective.

Method: This study was performed as a literature review based on eleven qualitative articles.

Results: Two main themes were identified: Positive experiences, that showed what the foreign-born patient's was considered valuable characteristics of the nurse to feel seen and valuable, trust and feel involved. Negative experiences, that showed what the foreign-born patients was considered poor attitudes of the nurse or lack of knowledge, such attitudes that made the patient felt offended.

Conclusion: Despite the multicultural society we live in the nurse requires more knowledge about other cultures to meet these. Cultural competence of the nurse showed positive effects on foreign-born patients' experiences but discrimination and prejudice exist.
