Self-neglect is a familiar concept to all community nurses.
Nevertheless there have been few empirical studies undertaken in this area over the last 30 years.
The study of self-neglect has been hampered by inadequate conceptualization aqd a lack of theoretical frameworks.
This article reports a study of patients who did and did not self-neglect, drawn from district nursing caseloads.
Patients with self-neglect had lower levels of operable self-care agency than patients in a comparison group.
Only self-neglecting patients had the nursing diagnoses'ineffective management of therapy and'non-compliance.
