Abstract [en]

The aim was to evaluate patients' perceptions of a specialized diabetes clinic for management of women with gestational diabetes born in Sweden and the Middle East and its contribution to a decreased level of stress and improved coping capability to promote health in patients receiving care.

Method: Semi-structured individual interviews by external evaluators. Participants were females with gestational diabetes, 13 born in Sweden and 14 born in the Middle East.

Findings: The present healthcare model was perceived as functioning well. Swedish women were problem focused and information seeking. Frustration and stress were increased due to perceived delay in information concerning gestational diabetes, limited access to telephone service and lack of confidence in staff because they lacked the expected competence. Control of gestational diabetes and pregnancy by different persons led to perceived lack of holistic care. Women from the Middle East felt cared, had been given the necessary information and claimed to follow advice. Adequate information reduced respondents' anxiety and increased their control over the situation.

The clinic needs to be further improved by adapting programmes to persons to become problem focused by giving adequate information immediately.
