The study included 810 participants from 72 inpatient wards and units and five community facilities in Ireland, Portugal, Lithuania and Italy. The findings indicate that nurses’ attitudes were mainly positive although attitudes varied across the countries. The authors suggest that, the differences could be related to wider social, cultural and organisational circumstances of nursing practice.
