Abstract

This article describes an observational study of nurses' interactions with mentally ill young people in a regional adolescent unit.Nurses initiated more than twice as many interactions as patients and were consistent in the average length of time they interacted with the young people. The author recommends that future studies include more qualitative data on the nature of interactions.
