Sally Hardy, Ben Thomas, Penny Cutting
Mosby, Jan 1, 1997 - Medical - 549 pages
Based on Stuart & Sundeen's Principles and Practice of Psychiatric Nursing, this UK edition is geared toward practice for nurses in the UK. The first unit covers the principles of mental health nursing care including roles and functions, models of care, the therapeutic relationship, and the context in which mental health nursing care is practiced in the UK. Unit Two looks at where mental health nursing care is provided: at home, in day centers, in hospital settings. With the move toward care in the community emphasis is given to the continuity of care and this unit will reflect the needs of UK practitioners. Unit Three then applies these principles to practice and considers the nursing interventions for a range of mental health care needs of individuals due to a wide range of conditions. This unit also considers the main treatment interventions offered in the UK.
