Abstract

In the context of concerns about the poor physical health and early mortality of people living with severe mental illness, it is important that nursing students are prepared to respond to the physical as well as the emotional needs of service users. In this reflective article, a nurse educator and three nursing students share their experiences of peer learning about these issues, outlining the rationale for this approach, the session design, students’ responses and the potential benefits.
