Variously called 'essential', 'fundamental' or 'basic' most people at some time in their lives will require assistance in undertaking personal care activities associated with amongst others, communication, breathing, eating and drinking, elimination, cleanliness and dressing, and mobility. Nurses are often called to provide such assistance. Despite the growth of evidence for highly specific nursing activities, evidence to inform the implementation of these essential care activities is sparse. This project will develop, test, and evaluate promising candidate interventions.
