    Abstract

    Purpose: To examine multiprofessionals’ views on patient involvement in acute psychiatric wards. Design and Methods: The study was conducted in four hospital districts in Finland. The data were collected between December 2016 and March 2017 by means of four focus group interviews and analyzed with inductive content analysis. Findings: The five main themes emerged: Patient-, carer-, professional-, hospital-, and healthcare system-related factors enhancing or preventing patient involvement in acute psychiatric wards. Practice Implications: The findings confirm that many obstacles need to be removed in ward practice before patient involvement can really be made a part of the daily routine.
