Abstract: Self-neglect can be understood as the failure to engage in those activities which a given culture deems necessary to maintain a socially accepted standard of personal and household hygiene and carry out activities needed to maintain health status. Self-neglect is bound up in a discourse which equates dirt with disease and in which transgressions of self-care norms can be labelled as a medical syndrome. The notion of self-neglect as a social construction is the theoretical perspective which provides the framework for the study reported here. Judgements regarding self-neglect may be social judgements influenced by professional socialisation and cultural values. The belief that different groups of nurses may have different constructions of self-neglect will be investigated and the factors which influence these judgements will be explored in three groups of nurses. The inclusion of nursing students will allow some picture to emerge as to whether judgements develop over time or are relatively constant across the career path, albeit within the limitations of a non-longitudinal design.
