Hemingway, Steve and Snowden, Austyn (2012) Debating mental health nurses' role in medicines management. British Journal of Nursing, 21 (20). pp. 1219-1223. ISSN 0966-0461

This article delineates concordance and adherence; two fundamental positions pertaining to the role of the nurse in medicine management. Taking the form of a debate, it uses mental health nursing to describe the role and function of concordance and adherence in practice. Each author presents their case and responds briefly to the other in order to show why they see the adoption of one term or another as central to medicines interventions with the patient. The purpose of the paper is to encourage readers to consider their own position in relation to this important debate.
