ABSTRACT

Aim: The aim of this study is to chart the experiences of Swedish general psychiatric care on a Swedish University hospital from a relative’s point of view. The study focus on how they are meet, satisfaction with and participation in the care. The study is done as an improvement project.

Methods: The study was conducted by performing semi-structured interviews with eight close relatives to patients on a general psychiatric ward. The interviews lasted for 20-40 minutes.

Results: The result shows that relatives are satisfied with the way they are meet by the staff on the ward, that they appreciate staff that are open, down to earth and are inviting to form a good relationship. It also shows that the relatives were not satisfied with the contact they had with the physicians. Furthermore it shows that the support efforts for relatives are successful when they are offered but many relatives don’t receive any information or offer about it. The relatives felt secure with the care that was on the ward.

Conclusion: The conclusion of this study is that the relatives are overall satisfied with the care given but that there are some areas within the psychiatric care that can be developed. These are the contact between relatives and physicians, information about the support efforts for relatives and more extensive information about the patient’s disease and the ongoing care.
