Abstract

The development of "whole-of-patient" approaches is explored using transcripts of 10 interviews with registered nurses implementing the Quickscreen© Clinical Falls Risk Assessment Tool in general practices in northern Tasmania. These data suggest that while the tool helped develop holistic nursing practices, the development of multidisciplinary practices requires different tools and strategies.
