"Jämlik vård för alla" - eller? : En kvalitativ studie om diskriminering av transpersoner inom den svenska hälso- och sjukvården.
Sammanfattning: Transgender people still face various types of discrimination, threat and violence on a global level. Even though the work against this societal problem proceeds in Sweden, studies have shown that transgender people often feel disrespected and discriminated within the health care context. This study aims to find a deeper understanding of discrimination against transgender people within the Swedish health care system, by analyzing and interpreting the stories of nursing students on the treatment of transgender people. In addition to this, the study aims to understand which social norms and values that are taught to the students in relation to discrimination against transgender people, and how the students relate and present themselves in relation to the social norms and values. In order to analyze the results of the study various theories and concepts are being used, such as queer theory, new institutionalism, stigma and Goffman’s dramaturgical perspective. The study is based on semi-structured interviews with eight nursing students, studying semester three to six at various universities in Sweden. The outcome of the study shows that three main norms and values seem to be of importance to the maintenance of institutional discrimination against transgender people within the Swedish health care system. These are the societal heteronorm, knowledge gap about transgender people, and stigmatization. The nursing students carry varying degrees of knowledge about trans gender people, but all participants seem to be open and receptive to the thought of meeting and caring for a transgender person in their future worklife.
