Martha Dunworth Fitzgerald and John Sweeney explore professionals’ perceptions of their roles when working with people in residential care
The aim of the research described here was to determine precisely the role of registered nurses in caring for adults with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities in residential care in Ireland. A qualitative descriptive study was carried out to explore nurses’ perceptions of their role in this specific area of intellectual disability care. The objective of the research was to help produce evidence-based guidelines on caring for this group of people and thus improve care standards.
