Abstract [en]

Background: As dispersed ethnic populations in Swedish society expand, the healthcare system need to adapt rehabilitationservices according to their needs. The experiences of trauma and forced resettlement have a continuing impact on healthand musculoskeletal pain, as well as the intersecting structures that prerequisite the possibilities in the new country. Tounderstand the specific needs of women from the Iraqi diaspora in Sweden, there is a need to elucidate the effects of painon their everyday life. Aims: To elucidate everyday life with chronic pain from the perspective of women from the Iraqidiaspora in Sweden. Methods: Qualitative interview study according to Glaser’s grounded theory. Results: The results from11 interviews suggest that pain was associated with dependency on society as well as on family. It resulted in a strugglefor sense of control, framed by faith in God, influenced by the healthcare system, and with support from family. Thewomen’s testimony of lack of continuity of care, resulting in recollection of lived traumas in every visit, is a vital sign of theunconscious power relations within health care and how representatives from health care, instead of being the ones whohelp the women forward, become the ones who hold them back.Conclusions: The results show the importance ofchallenging the normative assumptions embedded in health care and treatment for patients with chronic painand of including the voice of “others”.
