Abstract [sv]

 ABSTRACT Cultural or ethnic background has been shown to be significant for how individuals experience pain. The aim of this study was to examine the expectation and experience of acute pain, the use of stress-coping styles, and the distribution of analgesics among non-Nordic and Nordic women in a dental treatment situation. Instruments used were the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) and the Jalowiec Coping Scale (JCS). Non-Nordic women rated both expected and experienced pain significantly higher than Nordic women. No significant differences were found in stress-coping styles or in the distribution of analgesics between the two groups. Nurses must be sensitive to variations in pain communication styles across cultures.
