Abstract

© 2016 Elsevier Inc. Purpose To study the significance of ‘therapeutic relationship’ between nurses and patients within the context of a psychiatric hospital. Method Narrative literature review. Content analysis. Findings The significance of the therapeutic relationship is quite similar for both nurses and patients in psychiatric hospital units. Nevertheless, several factors may separate the two positions: the time available for the relationship, the negative perceptions on the part of both parties, and the insecurity of the setting. Practice implications Increased knowledge and understanding of the significance of the therapeutic relationship from the perspective of nurses and patients would allow the strengthening of areas of mutual interest.
