The impact of biological psychiatry on psychiatric nursing. Author's reply.
1. The evidence supporting a solely biological basis for mental disorder is equivocal.
Although any evidence may be used in support of the theory, no evidence is deemed sufficient to disprove it. 2. Psychiatric nursing must be cautious in adopting this paradigm and the view of human existence it entails, given the conflicting nature of the evidence, and the social, political, and economic forces that drive research in this field. 3. It is neither in the best interests of the clients we serve, nor of the profession as a whole, to surrender the formerly eclectic approach of nursing theory and practice in favor of a one-dimensional model.
