ABSTRACT
The purpose of this study was to develop an interview guide for use by primary healthcare professionals to support them in identifying the rehabilitation needs of forced resettled women from the Middle East living with chronic pain. Previous findings together with the existing literature were used as the basis for developing the interview guide in three steps: item generation, cognitive interviews, and a pilot study. The study resulted in a 16-item interview guide focusing on patients' concerns and expectations, with consideration of pre-migration, migration, and post-migration factors that might affect their health. With the help of the guide, patients were also invited to identify difficulties in their daily activities and to take part in setting goals and planning their rehabilitation. The current interview guide provides professional guidance to caretakers, taking a person-centered participative point of departure when meeting and planning care, for and together, with representatives from dispersed ethnic populations in Sweden. It can be used together with the patient by all staff members working in primary healthcare, with the aim of contributing to continuity of care and multi-professional collaboration.

ijerph-12-12043-f001: Development of the interview guide.

Mentions: Representatives from primary healthcare who had participated in a previous study [18] were told about the interview guide and asked to participate in a pilot study of the instrument. Four physiotherapists consented to participate. No representatives of other professions showed any interest in participating. The physiotherapists worked in three different health centers in municipalities with a high proportion of people from the Iraqi diaspora. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the instructions, interpretation, and relevance of the items. They were informed about the instrument orally and in writing and were asked to use it for a five-week interval when meeting with women from the Middle East who were accessing primary care for chronic pain. At the end of the period, they were asked to reflect on and score the usefulness, item interpretation, and content of the instrument and its instructions [25] on a four-step Likert scale. The answers were sent to the first author. The participants’ reflections were presented to the research group and used to adapt the instrument. One of the participating physiotherapists gave no specification as to how many patients were tested with the interview guide. The others had tested it with between one and two patients each. The process is described in Figure 1.
