Taking about self-harm: improving consultations between nurses and young people

Vari Drennan Professor, Healthcare and policy research at Kingston University and St George’s, University of London

Twenty focus groups with young people, GPs and practice nurses were undertaken, plus analysis of 285 young people’s medical records with self-harm coding (205 female, 80 male) from three general practices.
