Fighting prejudices and ignorance : A qualitative literature review of how people living with HIV experience the treatment from healthcare professionals (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Since Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was first identified, it has been associated with stigmatization in society. Receiving an HIV diagnosis has been perceived as challenging for both the individual and their relatives. Therefore, support from healthcare professionals is essential to promote health and alleviate suffering. Nurses are currently the largest professional group that encounters people living with HIV, as they work closest to the patient. 

Aim: To highlight how people living with HIV experience the treatment by healthcare professionals in the healthcare system.

Method: A qualitative literature review where 11 articles were included and analyzed using a manifest thematic analysis approach by Braun and Clarke (2006).

Results: Two themes and four sub-themes were identified. The first theme was Stigma and discrimination against patients, with sub-themes being Patients' experiences of healthcare professionals' negative attitudes and the Staff's reluctance to care for patients. The second identified theme was Patients' experiences of healthcare professionals' incompetence and competence, with sub-themes being Inadequate knowledge and information provided to patients and Positive experiences of healthcare professionals' treatment.

Conclusions: People living with HIV are subjected to violations and stigmatization within healthcare related to healthcare professionals' lack of knowledge. Further research is needed on how healthcare professionals' education can improve healthcare and how patients experience nurses' treatment within healthcare.
