This study explores the perceptions of staff who have been practising primary nursing for more than 4 years in intensive care..
It considers what primary nursing is, what its benefits, disadvantages, and role impact are and other issues within an intensive care setting from the staff's perceptions and experiences..
Although many of the perceived advantages and disadvantages are similar to experiences from other areas of nursing, there are some differences..
The differences seem to relate to the way primary nursing is practised within the research setting - each primary nurse works with the same small team of associates, which is perceived as providing added benefits in terms of personal support and development of junior staff..
The changes in role are seen to reflect other models in the literature which focus on becoming more patient centred and on working therapeutically..
A number of future issues are addressed.
