MARINA, Katia. Integral Health and Migration: cross cultural approach of the Nursing Process in a clinical case of the Migratory Health Program of Geneva, Switzerland. Enfermería (Montevideo) [online]. 2017, vol.6, n.2, pp.66-75.  Epub 01-Dic-2017. ISSN 1688-8375.

Abstract: The migratory wave that began in Europe in 2015 markedly modified the relative political and social stability that had been established in the continent for more than a decade. The abrupt increase in the number of refugees and asylum seekers and their extra-European origin, their cultural and linguistic differences and the tragic reasons of their exile, could not but raise new and urgent challenges in terms of their integration and socio-health care in the States of destination. Switzerland received more than 140,000 asylum applications between 2011 and 2016 and 2015 was the year of greatest influx with almost 40,000 applications, versus just over 27,000 in 2016. 5.6% of the country´s total was allocated to the canton of Geneva, in which specific health care programs assisted them. This work is based on the Nursing Process of a clinical case carried out in the Migratory Health Program of the Canton of Geneva, in January 2017. The objective is, through the Cross-Cultural Model of Nursing Care, to highlight aspects of care health of asylum seekers and identify the impact of the cross-cultural approach in the Health Process of this population
