Abstract [en]

Introduction: Schizophrenia is a common disease with a high risk of comorbidity in both psychiatric and somatic diseases. Physical activity is proven effective in reducing symptoms of schizophrenia and increasing overall health. Still it is not used systematically in the care of persons with schizophrenia.

Aim: The aim of this study is to describe nurses' experience, including personal motivation, in using physical activity as complementary treatment in patients with schizophrenia.

Method: Interviews in three focus groups with 12 participating nurses were conducted. Qualitative content analysis was used to analyze data.

Results: Physical activity was commonly used. Although several nurses signaled positive patient response, i.e. less anxiety and better quality of sleep, the overall consensus was an uncertainty regarding the benefits. It was perceived as non-evidence based form of intervention.

Conclusion: The uncertainty of the benefits of physical activity is evident in nursing staff and poses a resistance to implement systematic physical activity as a complementary treatment in schizophrenia. A new awareness of evidence based nursing is suggested to promote a wider and more receptive attitude to reduce patient vulnerability in persons with schizophrenia.
