More about the project:
Therapeutic engagement has long been recognised as a fundamental aspect of recovery-focused mental health nursing.

Therefore, the tool was developed for routine use within acute inpatient settings to measure components of therapeutic engagement from the perspective of service users and registered mental health nurses.
