Forensic carers attitudes toward patients diagnosed with Antisocial personality disorder (engelsk)
Abstract [en]

Background: About 4 % of the Swedish population meet the criteria for the diagnosis of antisocial personality disorder (ASPD). Individuals with ASPD are a difficult patient group to work with. Their personality can trigger different attitudes among the health care staff. The attitudes among the personnel can have an effect on the quality of the care that is given. Aim: The aim of this study was to describe forensic care staff attitudes toward patients diagnosed with ASPD.Method: A quantitative descriptive study has been performed. Forensic care staff completed a questionnaire about their attitudes towards patients diagnosed with ASPD. Data was analysed with Mann-Whitney test. Two main scales, "Work-satisfaction" and "Motivation" were created and with their help the study subject were categorized as "Satisfied" or "Unsatisfied" and "Motivated" or "Unmotivated". The impact of these categories on attitudes was studied in the sample.Results: The overall attitude of caregivers toward patients with ASPD was from neutral to negative. Only 12% of respondents indicated a positive attitude to this specific patient group and 65% of them had only low motivation to work with them. Those who were satisfied with their job had a neutral attitude toward patients with ASPD and they considered these patients dangerous. The result showed also that the motivated caregiving members actually had a low level of belief that their work is useful or that ASPD-patients can be treated, and these caregivers had a more negative attitude towards patients with ASPD. Conclusion: The conclusion of this study is that forensic caregiver have a neutral attitude towards patients diagnosed with ASPD. Low motivation and work-satisfaction was identified among the respondents and these factors do not correlate with each other.
