    Background: About 70% of all women in the world have sometimes been the victims of violence. Research has shown that health professionals are afraid of asking about the violence. Health professionals have a responsibility when it comes to detecting and identifying violence against the women. Aim: The aim of this study was to illustrate physically battered women's experiences of what characterizes a good health care relationship. Method: The study was conducted as a general literature review, this with the help of 11 scientific articles. Result: The main findings were a confirmation dialog, a confidence and trust-building relationship and a professional approach. Conclusion: Clinicians should show respect for battered women and also be good listeners. Body language can show if a person really mean what he/she says. As health professionals, it is important to figure out where you self stands on the issue of violence, so you can put it aside and give the patient the optimal care that is needed. Every meeting with a patient creates an opportunity to get to know her better. In this way an individual care can be given.
