PURPOSE: To observe the actions of psychiatric nurses when providing structure and identify results in order to better understand providing structure as a complex nursing intervention. DESIGN AND METHOD: Participant observation data were collected on a dual diagnosis ward and a crisis intervention ward in a mental healthcare organization. A total of 52 events were selected that involved providing structure. FINDINGS: Three phases in the processing of providing structure were identified: the start of the interaction, the interaction phase, and the end of the interaction. For each phase in the intervention, both critical nurse and patient responses were coded. PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: The results of this observational study contribute to a formalization of the nursing intervention "providing structure" in the Nursing Interventions Classification.
