Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This study adopts a qualitative research strategy (Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis) to explore in-depth the lived experience of six forensic mental health nurses working within Scotland. This paper examines one of the core themes uncovered through analyzing the transcripts, “From the Old to the New.” This theme, it is suggested, reflects these nurses' experience as they move from the previously accepted culture and practice of forensic nursing to a new “humanistic” and “interpersonal” perspective.
