Abstract [en]

Background: Previous research shows that language barriers can make it difficult for patients and nurses to communicate and understand each other. Communication enables patients to express their suffering to nurses, but language barriers can prevent this and thus affect the nurse-patient relationship. Although there are language barriers, nurses can create trust by showing willingness to care.

The purpose: The aim of the study is to describe nurses' experiences of how language barriers affects the nurse-patient relationship.

The method: A qualitative systematic literature study with a descriptive synthesis.

Results: The result presented two themes and four sub-themes. The theme Willingness to do good contained sub-men A willingness to care and To receive support to promote communication. The theme Obstacles in caring contained sub-men An emotional distance and Does not understand.

Conclusion: Language barriers, on the one hand, were found to limit the possibility of establishing a nurse-patient relationship, on the other hand, a nurse-patient relationship could develop into a caring relationship despite language barriers. Interpreters were necessary to be able to make contact with the patients, while being able to create a distance between the nurses and the patients.
