This is my first time contacting fellow members of the PCP group. I
am currently undertaking doctoral research, examining an aspect of
nursing care provision, from a PCP perspective. I am exploring
day-surgical nurses' perceptions of the "role" of the day surgical

To date, I have worked closely with 15 experienced day surgical
nurses, and together we have elicited a "core grid", which I would
like to use with a wider group of day-surcgical nurses. I wonder if
anyone could suggest where I might be able to access a grid analysis
package, which would allow comparison of a number of "similar" grids?
I think that Mildred Shaw has developed a possible package, but I
cannot find out where to get hold of a copy. I use a PC at work, and
an Apple Mac at home.

I would be really grateful of any help,
