Interpreters in healthcare: Nursing perspectives

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

PURPOSE: This study explored nursing experiences using interpreters in primary healthcare settings. METHODS: Eight nurses in southern Sweden were subjected to semistructured interviews. The responses were divided into three categories using content analysis: interpreter influence, challenges, and strategies. RESULTS: Despite using an interpreter to minimize language barriers, nurses do not achieve the same level of person-centered care as those who speak the same language as their patients, but translation services remain a useful communication tool for patient care. CONCLUSION: Communication through an interpreter is an inevitability for healthcare professionals, and formal education is recommended to improve nurses' utilization of these services.
