Sammanfattning: Background: Transgender and non-binary people are a stigmatized group within the society. Members of this group often experience a deep sense of exclusion, and are statistically over-representeded in mental healthcare. However, there is a lack of knowledge about how nurses providing care in these situations should appropriately behave and interact in meetings with transgender and non-binary people in healthcare. Aim: The purpose of this study was to describe the lived experiences of transgender and non-binary people in meetings with healthcare providers. Method: The study is based on a literature review with a descriptive design. Literature searches identified ten qualitative studies that met the study’s inclusion criteria. Findings from an analysis of the relevant literature are grouped into two overarching themes and seven further sub-themes. Main results: The findings of this study showed that the majority of transgender and non-binary people have experienced, on at least one occasion, being met with ignorance in healthcare situations. Those self-identifying as non-binary often reported feeling as though they are required to fit into categories they are uncomfortable with. Evidence also suggests that the kind of language used by healthcare providers played an important determining role in how meetings were experienced by transgender and non-binary people. Use of appropriate pronouns and terminology by staff appears to help make feel more accepted. Conclusion: Due to the widespread lack of knowledge, healthcare providers often found it difficult to know how to behave and interact in meetings with transgender and non-binary people. Problems rooted in the lack of understanding  contributed to negatively affect people’s experience with the healthcare system. Therefore education about transgender and non-binary people should be more available for healthcare-providers
