dc.description.abstract Aim The aim of the study was to explore nurses’ perceptions of their role in rehabilitation of the older person. Method Nine participants were interviewed in two rehabilitation units in Ireland. Data were transcribed and analysed using Colaizzi’s (1978) framework. Findings Three main themes emerged: care delivery, collaboration and autonomy/empowerment. Conclusion Nurses have an important role in the rehabilitation of older people, which is often undervalued and ill-defined. Nurses need to recognise and articulate their contribution and value. en_US
