Description:
Little is known on the nursing contributions to the mobilising of older adults following hip replacement surgery. This paper presents the findings from a study on nurses’ views of the contributions they make to the mobilising of older patients recovering from total hip replacement. A specific focus was laid on pain management and interpersonal care. The results show that Irish nurses reject mechanistic models of care in favour of contemporary approaches. The work of other authors is discussed extensively.
