Abstract:
The purpose of this descriptive study was to identify the differences if any, between community mental health nurses' and their clients' perceptions of their clients' needs. The samples were three masters prepared nurses and thirty clients. Data were collected from clients and nurses. A method of ranking statements repressing the ten categories was employed. There were six statements, each written on 7.6*12.7cm card, for each of the ten categories of needs. The clients selected one card from each of ten categories and ordered the ten categories of needs from the most important to the least important. The nurses were asked to order the ten same categories of needs from the most important to the least important need based on the specific clients. The results showed that out of ten variables, only two of them, accommodation, and safety, differed significantly. The clients and nurses had a relatively firm common-ground in the treatment. Factors that may have influenced this consistency are length of relationship between nurses and clients, education, and general health of clients.
