Abstract

This paper describes how the repertorygridtechnique was used to structure interviews with ward sisters and charge nurses to explore their perceptions about the nature of caring in nursing practice. Informants were also asked to assess themselves as carers. The interviews generated both qualitative and quantitative data and the findings which emerged were used to guide further qualitative interviews with nurses and patients in the next stage of the study.
