ABSTRACT
Objective: The aim of this study was to determine nursing students' thoughts and views about mechanical restraint used in acute psychiatric wards after they complete theoretical and practice of psychiatric nursing course. Material and Methods: This study with descriptive and qualitative design consisted of 27 nursing students who are attending the final year of two nursing schools. Three focus groups were carried out through semi-structured interview technique. In analysis of data obtained from focus group sessions, meaningful parts/phrases related to study topic directly were extracted, then, categories were generated through open coding in the context of inductive content analysis. Results: Three categories were identified towards nursing students' thoughts and views on mechanical restraint: "dilemmas on the nature of method", "implication process of method" and "alternatives to method", respectively. Mechanical restraint included some negativity (violation of human rights, trauma, restriction of freedom etc.) regarding patients while it required some necessities for implementers (self-protection, task force and environment etc.). Ambiguity for indication of mechanical restraint, the lack of training for staff and being unsupervised of practice were appeared in practice. Students suggested the use of approaches in conflict resolution and isolation than mechanical restraint as well as they did not approve to control patients through medication. Conclusion: There are professional and ethical debates over the existence of mechanical restraint and its implementation nowadays. Student nurses' views are similar to current debates and dilemmas related to mechanical restraint in acute psychiatric wards. Patient control methods should be addressed in extensive ways during psychiatric nursing education and practice keeping in mind the role of observation and experiences in development of professional attitudes.
