The nurse's role in anxiety management

Prof Nurse. 1995 May;10(8):509-12.


Nurses need to use a wider range of anxiety management strategies than simply information-giving. Interventions must take into account patients' coping styles and views of their situation. The use of critical incidents to promote reflection on experience offers a practical way to improve anxiety management skills.
