Abstract [en]

Background: In 2018, 22,400 sexual offenses were reported in Sweden, of wich 96% of them were against women. The Council of Europe had started in 2014 and the Convention on the Prevention and Control of Violence against Women and Domestic Violence. At the same, the Swedish Higher Education Ordinance (SFS 2017: 857 and 2018: 1135) made a change and from 1 July 2018, it became a requirement for nures to have knowledge of women who are subjected to violence.

Purpose: The aim of this study was to describe nurse´s experiences of meeting abused women.

Method: A descriptive literature study. The result is based on 11 scientific articles which were reviewed and analyzed. The articles are both of quantitative and qualitative approach.

Main Results: Knowledge and guidelines are essential for nurses in providing care for sexually, mentally and physically abused women. If the nurses received adequate education, knowledge of resources in the hospital but also in society, it resulted in a safer care and environment for the women and the nurses, they felt mor secure in asking and talking about partner violence. 

Conclusion: The nurse´s encounter with violent subjwomen aroused many strong feelings, and they were affected both during working hours and in private life. More training and knowledge in the subject are required for the nurses to be able to meet and care for women who are subjected to violence in a professional manner, which means more quality assured care.
