Abstract

Government guidelines stress the importance of service user views when assessing and developing quality healthcare provision. This review examines what is known about the experience of being admitted and staying on a mainstream psychiatric ward from the perspective of the patient. The review firstly provides a context to the main body of literature by discussing relevant factors such as stigma and ethnicity. In depth examination of the three main areas relevant to the experience of service users is then discussed. This includes overall key research, the studies on coercion and those focussing on treatments. Both quantitative and qualitative studies are examined along with relevant methodological issues. This review highlights the diverse nature of user views as well as how important it is to listen to people on the receiving end of help.
