Using Peplau's theory in nurse-patient relations.


In caring for a person suffering from depression, Peplau's theory of "Interpersonal Relations" was found to be both effective and representative of what psychiatric nurses do. Peplau's work, initially published in 1952, continues to make a major contribution to nursing knowledge and deserves the significance that it is being given in the 1990s. Below, a report on the learning experience for both the patient and the carer.
