Migration and Health

Description

There is an extensive ongoing global migration. Thus, many countries have been changed into multicultural societies. The chance of encountering persons with a foreign background in health care has then increased and is a challenge for health professionals as the disease pattern, health-related behaviour, ability to express symptoms, and signs of health and illness, expectations on health care staff, and nursing care might differ. However, knowledge in the field of migration and health and nursing care for migrants is limited but urgently needed all over the world.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to increase our knowledge about migrants' health and how to organise care meeting individual needs in persons with a foreign background and considering migrational experiences. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Health and health development in migrants
  • Beliefs about health and illness in migrants
  • Health-related behaviour and care seeking in migrants
  • Encounters in health care, ability to communicate, and/or use of interpreters in health care for migrants
  • Access to and/or barriers to health care in migrants
  • Care of and organisation of care of migrants in different ages
  • Care of and organisation of care for refugees
  • Mental health of migrants and psychiatric care
  • Experiences of migrant health professionals
  • Educational needs of health professionals to meet the needs of migrants
  • Policy issues
