Abstract

This research study draws upon co-constructed data to describe and interpret overweight nurses' experiences of their interactions with overweight patients. Within the limited number of research studies that investigate the worldview of overweight nurses, it is suggested that overweight nurses may have more empathy with overweight patients, who often receive prejudicial and discriminatory care.
