Psychological care of adults in ED: the experiences of registered nurses


Western Sydney University are conducting a study to explore the psychosocial (psychological and social) care that registered nurses provide to adult patients in ED. Recently published studies within this area have focused on how presenting to the ED influences the psychosocial health of adult patients. However, the nurses’ perspective of this is under represented.

WSU are looking for emergency RNs who are interested in sharing their experiences of providing psychosocial care to adult patients. The interviews will be one-on-one, and expected to take between 30-60 minutes, depending on how much you may have to share.

Participants should be qualified RNs with current AHPRA registration and:

  • Live/work in the Greater Sydney Region
  • currently practising in ED (or within the last 2 years)
  • with more than 12 months of ED experience

This study is being conducted by Julia Farley RN, Nursing Honours student from Western Sydney University. This study has been approved by the Western Sydney University Human Research Ethics Committee. The Approval number is H12771.
