  • Everyday life with chronic back pain: a qualitative study among Turkish immigrants in Denmark. [Journal Article]
    Disabil Rehabil 2019; :1-9Honoré Grauslund AM, Solmunde Michelsen J, Esbensen BA
  • CONCLUSIONS: Chronic back pain has a significant influence on daily life. Pain changes the feeling of identity relating to close relationships and in the Labor market. Most participants' proficiency in Danish language skills posed a challenge for the existing treatment paradigm, in which information is crucial for successful rehabilitation. IMPLICATIONS FOR REHABILITATION To improve access to both info on chronic back pain and its treatment, it is crucial that rehabilitation be offered in a range of languages. Proficiency in Danish varies greatly among immigrants, despite years of stay in Denmark. Engaging a professional interpreter early on in the rehabilitation program might improve patient compliance to the preferred treatment regimen. Including a peer-to-peer educational approach in parts of the rehabilitation program might be beneficial, as some immigrants remain skeptical towards the health care system in Denmark.
  • Predictors of tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis and influenza vaccination during pregnancy among full-term deliveries in a medically underserved population. [Journal Article]
    Vaccine 2019; 37(41):6054-6059Doraivelu K, Boulet SL, … Jamieson DJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: Compared to the national rate of both Tdap and influenza vaccination (32.8%), a higher proportion of women received both vaccines in our study population. Vaccine uptake may be affected by race/ethnicity, use of interpreter services, parity, pre-existing comorbidities, and prenatal care adequacy. The lower rate of influenza vaccination compared to Tdap vaccination suggests that other factors, such as vaccine hesitancy and mistrust, may be differentially impacting influenza vaccination uptake in our predominantly minority population. Future provider and public health approaches to vaccine promotion should incorporate culturally appropriate strategies that address vaccine-related beliefs and misconceptions.
  • Written narratives from immigrants following a prenatal diagnosis: qualitative exploratory study. [Journal Article]
    BMC Pregnancy Childbirth 2019; 19(1):154Carlsson T, Balbas B, Mattsson E
  • CONCLUSIONS: Immigrant women described an unexpected personal tragedy when faced with a prenatal diagnosis of foetal anomaly, and emphasised the importance of respectful and empathic psychological support. Their experiences of insufficient and incomprehensible information call attention to the importance of tailored approaches and the use of adequate medical interpreting services. There is a need for more descriptive studies that investigate decision-making and preparedness for induced abortion among immigrants faced with a prenatal diagnosis.
  • Video Remote Interpreting Technology in Health Care: Cross-Sectional Study of Deaf Patients' Experiences. [Journal Article]
    JMIR Rehabil Assist Technol 2019; 6(1):e13233Kushalnagar P, Paludneviciene R, Kushalnagar R
  • CONCLUSIONS: To increase satisfaction with VRI technology service in health care and rehabilitation settings among deaf patients, special attention needs to be given to video technology, as the use of sign language requires high-fidelity video for optimal communication between the interpreter and patient. To promote the willingness to disclose medical information through VRI among deaf patients, the interpreter must be highly skilled in both expressive and receptive communication and have the requisite background in medicine and rehabilitation.
  • Dementia and immigrant groups: a qualitative study of challenges related to identifying, assessing, and diagnosing dementia. [Multicenter Study]
    BMC Health Serv Res 2018; 18(1):910Sagbakken M, Spilker RS, Nielsen TR
  • CONCLUSIONS: Detection, treatment and care may be improved if primary care professionals strengthen their cross-cultural competences. Training in communication skills and in the use of cross-cultural assessment tools may help build competence and confidence when assessing and caring for people with different cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Closer collaboration among families, nurses in home-based services, dementia teams, and GPs may facilitate close monitoring of a patient over time. Such collaboration requires sufficient information exchange during transitions in the chain of care, continuity among health professionals, and a shared understanding of the goals for treatment and care.
