Abstract

The concept of restlessness has been explored and a definition proposed. The behavior has been described within the framework of Activation Theory, and several approaches to measurement have been suggested. It remains for nursing researchers to test the adequacy of this analysis, to support or reject the antecedents, and to propose interventions which are philosophically congruent.
