Frame of reference : The results are discussed in light of Eriksson´s theory of suffering and caring relationships Method: A qualitative analysis based on focus group discussions Results: The analysis resulted in six categories, to protect the patient , to involve the patient , not to lose control , to remain , to justify compulsion , and to be touched . The results showed that nurses had the experience of being able to relieve the suffering of patients caused by coercive measures. It was also found that the nurses had a tendency to justify coercive measures , the more experience they had of performing these . Conclusion: The results describe that nurses have the experience and knowledge of how to relieve patients' suffering caused by coercion but also their experiences of performing these .

The conclusion of this study is that it is relatively small means that nurses feel able to relieve the suffering of patients . By taking the time to listen , acknowledge and see the patient , to be honest and respectful in their treatment and , wherever possible, try to accommodate patients' wants and needs so you can hopefully avoid adding unnecessary patient suffering.
