Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund:

Transpersoner är personer som har en könsidentitet som skiljer sig från det medfödda könet. De har hög sjukdomsprevalens inom flera områden och utsätts för stigma, diskriminering och våld inom och utanför vården. Stigma, diskriminering och våld är kopplade till en ökad risk för ohälsa och ett behov finns att ta del av transpersoners upplevelser, för att förbättra deras vård, hälsa och livskvalitet.

Syfte:

Att beskriva transpersoners erfarenheter och upplevelser inom olika vårdsammanhang.

Metod:

En litteraturstudie omfattande tretton artiklar. Sju teman har identifierats: undervisa vårdpersonal, erkännande av könsidentitet, nekad vård, grindvaktning, specifika vårdbehov relaterat till medfött kön, diskriminering och positiva erfarenheter.

Resultat:

Många negativa upplevelser har identifierats. Det var vanligt att transpersoner behövde undervisa personal och upplevelsen av diskriminering varierade mellan 23,6% - 66,8% i studierna. Resultaten visade på bristande respekt av transpersonernas namn och pronomen.

Slutsats:

Transpersoner har många negativa erfarenheter och har upplevt negativt bemötande från personal, vilka kan påverka deras hälsa negativt.

Abstract [en]

Background:

Transgender people have a gender identity that differs from their innate sex. They have a high prevalence of disease in several areas and are subjected to stigma, discrimination and violence within and outside of health care. Stigma, discrimination and violence are linked to increased risks of illness. A need to take part in their experiences in order to improve health care and quality of life for transgender people therefore exists.

Aim

: To describe transgender people´s experiences of encounters with health care staff within various health care settings.

Method:

A litterature review based on thirteen studies were conducted. Seven themes were identified: educating health care staff, acknowledgement of gender identity, denial of care, gatekeeping, difficulties accessing care related to innate sex, discrimination and positive experiences.

Results: A range of negative experiences are reported. The need to educate staff was frequent and experiences of discrimination ranged between 23,6% - 66,8% in the articles. A lack of respect regarding transgender people’s names and pronouns was found.

Conclusion:

Transgender people are subjected to a range of negative experiences within health care settings that may result in risks of illness.
