Abstract

A pilot study was conducted to examine the impact of a Family Systems Nursing educational program on the practice of psychiatric nurses and to explore the nurses' perceptions of the educational program. One year after the program, six nurses were asked to complete logbooks and to participate in an individual semistructured interview based on open-ended questions and on the critical incident approach to describe their family nursing interventions and to explore their perceptions on how the educational program influenced their practice of family nursing care. Content analyses indicated that participant nurses integrated systemic family interventions in their practice and were satisfied with the program.
