All Are Similarly Different : How multicultural working groups affect nursing – an interview study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Invandringen till Sverige har ökat kraftigt de senaste 20 åren, och en allt större del av befolkningen är född utanför Sverige. Antalet vårdanställda som är födda utomlands ökar därmed också, och det gör vården till en mångkulturell arbetsplats. Tidigare forskning på mångkultur i arbetslivet visar att det både kan ge vinster och betyda svårigheter. Syfte: Syftet var att belysa sjuksköterskors erfarenheter av hur omvårdnadsarbetet påverkas av att arbeta i en mångkulturell arbetsgrupp. Metod: En kvalitativ intervjustudie med induktiv ansats har använts som metod. Datainsamlingen gjordes genom sex semistrukturerade intervjuer med stöd av en intervjuguide. Intervjuerna analyserades utifrån en manifest kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Resultat: Analysen av intervjuerna resulterade i tre huvudkategorier: Språksvårigheter, Vinster och utmaningar och Kunskap. Varje kategori har två subkategorier. Slutsats: Mångkulturella patientgrupper kan få bättre omvårdnad av mångkulturell vårdpersonal. Mångkultur på arbetsplatsen ställer dock krav på sjuksköterskornas kulturella kompetens. För att det ska fungera är det dessutom viktigt att alla i personalen anpassar sig till rådande vårdkultur.

Abstract [en]

Background: Immigration to Sweden has increased sharply over the past 20 years. This means that an increasing proportion of the population is born abroad. The number of healthcare workers born abroad is also increasing. This makes health care a multicultural workplace. Previous research on multiculturalism in working life shows that it can give both positive and negative effects. Aim: The aim was to investigate nurses' experiences of how nursing is influenced by working in multicultural working groups. Method: A qualitative interview study with an inductive approach has been conducted. The data collection was done through six semi-structured interviews, based on an interview guide. The interviews were analyzed on the basis of a manifest qualitative content analysis. Results: The analysis of the interviews resulted in three main categories: Language Difficulties, Gains and Challenges and Knowledge. Each category has two subcategories. Conclusion: Multicultural patient groups can get better care from multicultural care staff. Multicultural working groups, however, require demands on the nurses' cultural skills. In order for it to work, it is also important that staff adapts to the current care culture.
