HOW CONVERSATIONS ABOUT SEXUALITY IS PROMOTED AMONG NURSES : A literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Patienter som upplever sexuell ohälsa känner ofta ett behov av information och vill prata om sina problem med vårdpersonal. Sjuksköterskor är ansvariga att hantera sexuellt relaterade frågor och problem, men trots att det förväntas av dem att initiera dessa samtal, visar forskning att det sällan sker. Syfte: Att sammanställa och belysa forskning som beskriver hur samtal om sexualitet med patienter främjas bland sjuksköterskor. Metod: Litteraturöversikt. Resultat: I analysen framkom sju teman som beskriver hur samtal om sexualitet främjas bland sjuksköterskor, nämligen genom; Att ha kunskap, Att vara bekväm och ansvarstagande, Att ha en god patientrelation, Motiverande patientsituationer, Att ha en god arbetsmiljö, Hög jobbposition och utbildning samt Att ha erfarenhet. Diskussion: Resultatet visar ett antal olika faktorer som främjar samtal om sexualitet mellan sjuksköterska och patient, men endast ett fåtal med tillräcklig reliabilitet för att kunna utgöra en generaliserbar slutsats. Faktorer som ålder, erfarenhet, jobbposition och civilstånd visar osäkra resultat med låg kongruens. Kunskap, utbildning och att känna sig bekväm med ämnet är de huvudsakliga faktorer som främjar sjuksköterskans förmåga att samtala om sexualitet med patienter. 

Abstract [en]

Background: A persons sexual health may be affected by a number of diseases and different treatments, for example cancer and chemotherapy. Patients who experience sexual health problems often feel a need for information and want to talk about their illness with a health professional.. Nurses have a responsibility to deal with patients’ sexual issues and problems, however, even though expectations lies with them to initiate the conversation, studies reveal it rarely happens. Method: Litterature review. Objective: To compile and highlight research that describes how conversations about sexuality with patients is promoted among nurses. Results: The analysis revealed seven themes that describe how conversations about sexuality is promoted among nurses, namely by: Having knowledge, Being comfortable and responsible, Having a good patient relationship, Motivational patient situations, Having a good working environment, High job position and education and Having experience. Discussion: The results show a number of different factors that promotes nurse-patient conversations about sexuality, although, only a few with sufficient reliability to be a generalisable conclusion. Factors such as, age, experience, job position and marital status show uncertain results with low congruence. Knowledge, education and to feel comfortable with the topic are the main factors underpinning nurses’ ability to discuss sexuality with patients.
