Influences of Stigma, Culture, and Gender on Nursing Management of Children with Asthma in Saudi Arabia

Abeer Alatawi, Pam Smith, Nicola Ring, Colin Chandler


Abstract: This study explored the influences of socio- cultural factor in paediatric asthma management in Saudi Arabia. This study employed a qualitative research, based on Burawoys extended case method, using a multi?method data collection approach consisting of observations, and semi-structured interviews with 9 doctors, 12 nurses and 11 parents of children with asthma to identify multiple perspectives. The findings of this study confirm that culture, gender and stigma are the factors that contribute most to influencing the nursing asthma management. Further these findings suggest that a supportive environment was most important to the nursing management in a chronic disease in order to actively engage with KSA society to meet patient's needs. Implications for future studies to evaluate the scope of these recommendations through a longitudinal study are very important to explore and develop the identity of nurses and their role within the healthcare environment.
