The use of coercive measures in a high secure hospital: expressions of institutional and emotional work
Hui, Ada M.L. (2015) The use of coercive measures in a high secure hospital: expressions of institutional and emotional work. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
This thesis examines the use and implications of using coercive measures within a high security hospital.

Yet coercive measures are deemed ethically, morally and professionally controversial.
