Understanding Mental Health Practice for Adult Nursing Students
- Steve Trenoweth - University of Bournemouth
As an adult nurse you will come into contact with a wide-range of service users during your practice. Whilst your focus might be on the physical problem that brought them to you, understanding their mental health is also a key part of your role and important to treating people effectively. This book will give you practical guidance on how to respond to the needs of those in your care who face mental health challenges, helping you be more prepared and able to deliver person-centred care confidently.
· Fully mapped to the NMC standards of proficiency for registered nurses (2018)
· Offers a clear and concise overview of contemporary mental health nursing care
· Case studies and activities help you relate theory and concepts to your nursing practice
This book is now adopted as ESSENTIAL reading for our students on T Level, particularly in the second year where students will undertake specialisms in Mental Health Practice.
an easy to read text which highlights mental health practice in adult nursing
Used in a generic module that covers concepts of mental health. The book is ideally written to give student nurses from other fields an insight into how MH practice is relevant and helpful to them as professionals
I use this text when delivering the importance of mental health in adult nursing care.
A welcome updated version of essential aspects of mental health care. User friendly and easy to navigate. I particularly liked the inclusion of positive psychology interventions to balance out the more traditional and expected interventions.
