      Abstract

      Hildegard Peplau’s work formally began the development, basis and revolution of nursing knowledge for general nursing as well as for psychiatric mental health nursing. Her underlying philosophical assumptions and interpersonal relations theory not only emphasized the science of nursing that was empirically rooted and dominant from the time, but she illustrated how nursing as an art could equally contribute to the nursing knowledge, practice, and research that is so evident in nursing today. As a pioneer of nursing, Peplau helped to bridge the gap between theory and practice that continues to build on nursing’s knowledge base today. On the Canadian front, nurse leader, Cheryl Forchuk, continues to put it to the test.

        A literature review of the progress of the psychiatric nurse-patient relationship as described by Peplau.

        Knowledge is limited with regard to the progress of the nurse and patient through the phases of the psychiatric nurse-patient relationship (PNPR). Relationship progress is indicative of patient progress in the healing and recovery process. Hildegard Peplau described the phases of the therapeutic relationship in her Interpersonal Relations Theory (IRT). This review of literature describes the state of nursing science using IRT as the theoretical framework. Research conducted on the progress of the PNPR has generated evidence of the relevance of IRT to clinical practice, the importance of the PNPR to the patients themselves, and the importance of nursing knowledge regarding the progress of the orientation phase of the PNPR to patient care. However, all studies were done in Canada, and additional studies are needed. Knowledge of the relationship established between psychiatric nurses and patients is essential to the nursing process in psychiatric mental health settings.
