ABSTRACT

Aim of the study: To ascertain the factors involved in the delivery of culturally competent primary care nursing for asylum applicants in Glasgow.
Methodology: Asylum applicants are a highly vulnerable group of people from a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds, who may have suffered violence and torture before seeking asylum in the UK (Halabi 2005).This ethnographic study used an interpretive theory of culture approach in the research design (Geertz 1973), involving the development of a �thick description� as the basis for analysis of how primary care nurses provide services for asylum applicants. The methods used involve participant observation, interviews and focussed discussion groups. Informants included asylum applicant men and women, practice nurses, health visitors, community staff nurses and support workers. Interventions between the nurses and the asylum applicants were observed, and the informants were interviewed separately after the intervention. Field notes as Wolcott (1995) suggests, were written up within 48 hours into a word document. The documents were analysed using a simple File Maker Pro database.
Results: The results showed that communication in a bi-cultural context was highly complex. Effective communication was essential for an accurate health needs assessment,safe practice and referral to other services. The nurses acquired skills of working within the cultural context of their clients and knowing when and how to use an interpreter effectively.
Conclusion: As Scotland becomes more multi-cultural in nature, the skills of communicating well with people from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds are essential for nursing in all areas of health care. The skills of using interpreters should be promoted through training for all nurses in Scotland.
