This article describes the construction and impact of an education module designed to improve medicine management in mental health nursing. In particular, it justifies the need for such education and illustrates the impact that it can have on knowledge and understanding. It examines a specific example of translating theory into practice by presenting a case study where person-centred medicine management was put into action in a busy acute ward. By analysing the process issues surrounding this case it is argued that future attempts to articulate concordance can be supported better.
