Abstract This paper outlines a technique, the repertory grid technique, which offers the opportunity for psychiatric nurses to document information gained in an interview setting. The method, which consists of structured and systematic questioning, allows exploration of individual's systems of meanings. Data collection is separated from inference, hence the criticism that the nursing data is impressionistic and opinionated is avoided. The controlled conversational format of the technique provides an enhanced awareness of receiving information and interpreting it, and the primary data is clearly presented and available for discussion about conclusions. These data can be subjected to qualitative and quantitative analysis and the method is to be recommended as a research technique which could be of value to psychiatric nurses at the clinical level.
