Abstract [en]

Background In remote areas of the Peruvian Amazon there is a high burden of communicable diseases, limited access to health care and a low distribution of registered nurses. Registered nurses are working with indigenous patients in the area, where traditional medicine and practice is common. In order to strengthen the relation between western and traditional practices, intercultural health has been implemented within the public health care.

Aim The aim was to describe registered nurses’ experiences of working with indigenous patients in remote health care settings in Loreto region, Peruvian Amazon.

Findings Three categories were identified in the analysis; Working environment in a remote area, Providing health care for indigenous patients and Including intercultural health in nursing practice. The participants’ daily work with few colleagues and high demand in remote clinics was described.
