An important, but often neglected, part of any research or audit exercise is the reporting back to participants of the results of that exercise. When feedback is made, it is often of a general, aggregated nature. Considerations of cost and psychological factors usually preclude feedback to individuals. As part of a larger study we have developed a prototype mechanism for providing such individual feedback. This was done by writing a computer program which automatically generated the report, using rules on how to interpret different patterns of responses to a questionnaire. Previous qualitative evaluation had shown a positive response from participating nurses. The current small-scale study reports a more formal evaluation. Participants who received reports on the degree to which their ward was practising primary nursing overwhelmingly found the reports readable, informative, encouraging, accurate and useful.
