Does nursing theory adequately prepare psychiatric nurses to work with delusional patients ?
The theory and practice of psychiatric nursing has been subjected to little serious research ; consequently some nursing interventions recommended by nursing texts lack formal evaluation.
This study examined one aspect of practice : the way in which nurses work with delusional patients.
Registered psychiatric nurses were asked to describe the way in which they deal with patients whose delusions are a major clinical problem.
The findings highlight a disparity between practice and theory.
