Until recently, abuse in health care (AHC) was an almost unexplored research field. There are studies on similar topics, e.g.; about physicianpatients communication (Annandale and Hunt, 1998; Ong et al., 1995), nurse-patient relationships (Halldorsdottir, 1996), various kinds of assaults against patients, e.g. abusive caring of demented patients (Eriksson and Saveman, 2002), sexual involvement between physicians or psychotherapists and patients (Fahy and Fisher, 1992; Dehlendorf and Wolfe, 1998; Hetherington, 2000), abuse of children in psychiatric care (Kaplan et al. 2001), and abuse within maternal care in developing countries (Jewkes, Abrahams, and Mvo, 1998; d’Olivera, Diniz, and Schraiber, 2002). Different kinds of patient evaluations of care could also be considered a research field related to AHC. Patient satisfaction and patient dissatisfaction are concepts that have been commonly used in such patient evaluations (van Campen et al., 1995; Annandale and Hunt, 1998; Coyle 1999; Coyle and Williams 1999). However, such studies have been subjected to profound critique, both because of a lack of theoretical and conceptual basis and also due to methodological weaknesses, as personal experiences are measured by using quantitative means (van Campen et al., 1995; Coyle and Williams, 2000, 2001; Rogers, Karlsen and Addington-Hall, 2000; Edwards and Titchen, 2003; Staniszewska and Henderson, 2005; Turris, 2005; Eriksson and Svedlund 2007).
