Patient satisfaction surveys can inform this service delivery, thus we explored patient satisfaction among non-Western migrants receiving treatment in a Danish specialized outpatient mental health clinic [Competence Centre for Transcultural Psychiatry (CTP)].METHODS: We used multivariate logistic regression models to estimate associations between 'Overall treatment satisfaction' and treatment-related items plus potential confounders from a cross-sectional patient satisfaction survey (n = 686). The satisfaction questionnaire was a self-report measurement tool developed locally at CTP. Participants were non-Western migrants above 18 years with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or depression diagnoses according to ICD-10.RESULTS: Most participants (n = 497; 82.6{\%}) reported overall satisfaction with their mental health treatment, but less than half (n = 311; 48.8{\%}) reported an improvement in health and situation after end of treatment. Participants who experienced a subjective improvement in their health and situation had significantly higher odds of being satisfied with their mental health treatment [odds ratio (OR) = 8.5, 95{\%} confidence interval (CI): 4.0-18.1]. Perceptions of influence on the treatment course (OR = 4.7, 95{\%} CI: 2.4-9.2), and of understanding and respect for one's cultural background (OR = 3.4, 95{\%} CI: 1.5-7.6) were significantly associated with treatment satisfaction.

Patient satisfaction surveys can inform this service delivery, thus we explored patient satisfaction among non-Western migrants receiving treatment in a Danish specialized outpatient mental health clinic [Competence Centre for Transcultural Psychiatry (CTP)].METHODS: We used multivariate logistic regression models to estimate associations between 'Overall treatment satisfaction' and treatment-related items plus potential confounders from a cross-sectional patient satisfaction survey (n = 686).
