Abstract

Over the past decade considerable emphasis has been placed on the nurse's role in patient education. Despite this numerous studies have suggested that this aspect of nursing practice is under-developed. Using rehabilitation as a case example this paper explores the nursing contribution to patient education in five conditions: multiple sclerosis; arthritis; myocardial infarction; spinal injury and stroke. Although the literature identifies considerable potential for nurses to take a lead role in patient education this is rarely achieved in practice. Analyses of printed curricula from a range of courses indicate that nurses are not adequately prepared for patient education and that a reorientation of nurse education is required.
