Patients´ experiences of power aspects in compulsory psychiatric care : a literature review (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Patients in compulsory psychiatric care often feel powerlessness and a defective participation. A good treatment from the caregivers with empathy, feeling and respect can help the patients to be motivated to participate in their care. The alliance between patients and caregivers can make a good base in the care process. It can also help patients to decide to change their lives. Aim: To describe patients' experience of power aspects in compulsory psychiatric care. Method: A literature review with qualitative articles. Nine articles were analyzed to find similarities and differences. It resulted in three themes and eight subthemes. Results: The first theme described patients' experiences of participation, being limited and the feelings about their lack of control and not being informed. The second theme described patients' experience of the social interaction in compulsory psychiatric care, alliance, treatment from the staff and their superior power positions. The third theme described the care environment influence of the patients' circumstance of life and feeling of safeness. It also described the battle within oneself. Conclusion: The study reveals that many patients have experienced a lack of participation, information and control. Patients felt powerless compared to the staff by the way they acted and treated them. Many have been treated with defective empathy and respect. They described feelings of being treated like a unworthy and not successful human. It revealed that many patients wanted a better alliance with the caregivers. They also wanted to be more participated and informed about their care
