This article reports on one aspect of a research project carried out to monitor and evaluate the introduction of primary nursing on four demonstration wards in one health authority. Nursing staff working on the wards were interviewed to identify how the changes were affecting them and their work. Stress questionnaires were also completed by a sample of nurses on the wards. Responsibility and communication--key concepts emerging from the data--are discussed and related to the literature on primary nursing.
