This is the first of two articles examining the role and function of concordance in clinical medicine management. It records the development of a questionnaire designed to help facilitate a training needs analysis for registered mental health nurses. The purpose of this is to generate ward-based training in concordance that is clinically meaningful and accessible to those in need of it. Both articles will show that the clinical impact of concordance can be measured and facilitated.
