This article aims to assist nurses in the identification, assessment and treatment of patients experiencing anxiety. The focus is on generalised anxiety disorder and its effect on the individual and society. Guidance from the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence is used to inform management strategies. Nurses have a pivotal role to play in the assessment and treatment of anxiety and need to work closely with patients to ensure they receive appropriate support and referral if necessary.
