Abstract [en]

Background: The Delphi method developed in the 1950s in the US-Army as a way to forecast the probability of nuclear weapons usage in war by consulting "experts". From this origin the Delphi method successfully spread in dierent academic disciplines during the late 1900 to become one important method for access "expert consensus" in situations where no other evidence exist and furthermore to provide a valuable tool in the investigation of "expert opinion" and may thereby help to guide future policy directives in an era such as nursing. Objective: The aim of this presentation is to describe the possibilities of using this approach to explore under-researched areas in nursing using conclusion drawn from a scoping review of Delphi studies on refugee's health and social participation. Method: Scoping review Results: The ndings show that health workers; nurse’s, physicians, civil servants have a tremendous impact on health outcomes that occur for refugees during their adjustment to a new life and that their interpretation and implementing policies is important to consider when elaborating on health and resources of health. Conclusion and implication for practice: To conclude, emphasizing the tacit knowledge of experts the ndings show that this type of approaches can serve as a method to both investigate and establish a consensus among nurses or in areas of nursing research where evidence is lacking. Delphi method is a tool that can provide valuable insight regarding nursing knowledge that is not possible to monitor in any other way and can become more important in nursing research in the future.
