Israel Annals of Psychiatry and Related Disciplines. XVI, 1978: Attitudes Towards Self-Poisoning among British and Israeli Doctors and Nurses in a Psychiatric Hospital. Sh. Ramon and C. E. Breyter. Pp. 206-218.

Psychiatrists and nurses differed more within the British group than in the Israeli one. In both groups, however, nurses tend to be less accepting, less sympathetic, and less ready to help than doctors. The findings are discussed in relation to those obtained in the original study of staff in a general hospital.
