Experimental: Educational intervention
Beside usual care the intervention will encourage collaborative practices between staff, patients and family members to adopt more human patient-centred approach on the unit. The intervention is designed to impact on treatment culture and thereby treatment practices on the study wards.
Behavioral: Educational intervention
Educational intervention for staff members will encourage collaboration between patients, relatives and staff members. Skills, intellectual resources, motivation and encouragement among staff members to make changes on the unit will be supported. More detailed content of the intervention to be used in each unit will be tailored based on preparatory phase of the study and individual needs of the unit. The educational intervention will be carried out beside usual care.
No Intervention: Treatment as usual
