Abstract [en]

 

Forensic psychiatric care is largely populated by men—as pa-

tients, caregivers, and nurses. Previous research has not focused on

the meaning of gender in this context. The aim of this study is to

analyse male nurses’ experiences of working with male caregivers

and attending to male patients in forensic psychiatric care. Data

were collected through interviews with sixmale nurses. The results

consist of five themes. Protection and defence are key aspects of

care and male caregivers gain status and authority through their

physical strength. This could hamper caring and provide male

caregivers with a superior position in the department.
