Research has shown that a patient's emotional state can definitely affect the physical processes of disease and recovery. For patients undergoing hospital treatment, their relationships with nursing staff may have a major influence on their emotions and thus affect their ability to cope with their condition. This book explores the importance of the nurse-patient relationship in the light of psychoanalytic theory. Written by contributors from many different nursing backgrounds (ranging from mental health to paediatrics to palliative care), Nurses and Their Patients also includes a number of practical case studies and a section on research and clinical supervision. Anyone involved in caring for patients will find this book helpful, inspiring and thought-provoking
