Abstract [sv]

Genusbias har enligt studier inverkan på vilken diagnos och behandling ungdomar får inom barn- och ungdomspsykiatri. Både vårdtagares och behandlares genus har en inverkan på vårdförloppet. Syftet med studien var att undersöka om och hur behandlarens genus påverkade hans eller hennes val av diagnos. Ett delsyfte var att undersöka om och hur patienternas genus påverkade vilken diagnos de fick under vårdperioden. Föreliggande studie är en retrospektiv studie och journaler från den specialiserade barn- och ungdomspsykiatrin (BUP) i Västsverige granskades. Samtliga professioner som finns representerade i tillgänglig data valdes ut. Resultaten i denna studie visar ingen signifikant skillnad mellan hur män och kvinnor sätter diagnos inom etablerade kategorier av diagnoser. Vidare finns det inte någon signifikant skillnad mellan vilken diagnos och behandling pojkar och flickor får. Slutsatsen i denna studie är att pojkar och flickor får samma diagnos och behandling, även beroende på behandlarens genus.
