Female genital mutilation and transcultural nursing: adaptation of the Rising Sun Model.

Jiménez-Ruiz I, Almansa Martínez P

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: Female genital mutilation (FGM) is a widespread practice mainly in Sub-Saharan Africa and is considered an affront on the dignity and health of women and young girls.

OBJECTIVES: To establish a theoretical model, inspired by that of Madeleine Leininger, in order to examine the reasonings used to justify FGM.

METHODS: Theorization through bibliographic review.

Resuts and conclusions: The factors used to justify this act are diverse and convert the tradition into a form of cultural care. From this viewpoint, nurses might evaluate the supposed justifications via the Rising Sun Model in order to redirect such a practice through nursing interventions such as: research into propagating factors, sensitizing through hindering factors or health education, highlighting the contradictions existent in the justification of FGM.

More nurses are needed to deal with a ‘national scandal’.

Amadi O.

EXTRACT

Female genital mutilation (FGM) is a public health issue for nurses working in school, community and general practice settings (Features June 25).

The recent select committee report labelling FGM a ‘national scandal’ reinforces Unite’s call for more school nurses and health visitors to be hired.

Guidance from a number of colleges, including the RCN and the Royal College of Midwives, estimates that 66,000 women in England and Wales have undergone FGM and that more than 23,000 girls under the age of 15 are at risk…

Aproximation to the ablation/female genital mutilation (A/FGM) from the transcultural nursing. A bibliographical revision. (Article in Spanish)

Jiménez Ruiz I. Almansa Martínez P, Pastor Bravo MM, Pina Roche F

ABSTRACT

Objective: Analysing the argumentations in favour to the Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) with the intention to know and understand the complex and subjective reality of this practice.  Material and method: bibliographical search and revision on the net in order to accessing Web directories of organizations and the main health sciences data bases. Results: The analysis of the biography contributes with a big quantity of information regarding the supportiveness of this practice and the complications derived from it, clarifying the complex situations involved in its perpetuation. Conclusions: The FGM is understood as a cultural care of women determined by socio-cultural, hygienic-aesthetic, religious-spiritual and sexual factors among others related with health. In this way, a wide range of secondary complications to FGM have been described.

Increasing certified nurse-midwives’ confidence in managing the obstetric care of women with female genital mutilation/cutting.

Increasing certified nurse-midwives’ confidence in managing the obstetric care of women with female genital mutilation/cutting.

Jacoby SD, Smith A.

INTRODUCTION: In response to an increase in the number of women who immigrate to the United States from countries that practice female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C; infibulation), US clinicians can expand their knowledge and increase confidence in caring for women who have experienced infibulation. This article describes a comprehensive education program on FGM/C and the results of a pilot study that examined its effect on midwives’ confidence in caring for women with infibulation.

METHODS: An education program was developed that included didactic information, case studies, a cultural roundtable, and a hands-on skills laboratory of deinfibulation and repair. Eleven certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) participated in this pilot study. Participants completed a measure-of-confidence survey tool before and after the education intervention.

RESULTS: Participants reported increased confidence in their ability to provide culturally competent care to immigrant women with infibulation when comparisons of preeducation and posteducation survey confidence logs were completed.

DISCUSSION: Following the education program and the knowledge gained from it, these midwives were more confident about their ability to perform anterior episiotomy and to deliver necessary care to women with FGM/C in a culturally competent context. This education program should be expanded as more women who have experienced infibulation immigrate to the United States.
