Each chapter includes a summary of key points and suggestions for further reading, and also includes useful appendices listing key professional and voluntary organisations, journals, Internet and mailing lists. The handbook reflects the diversity and scope of the role of the CMHN and recognizes the multidisciplinary and service user context in which nurses work.

Awarded second place in the 2017 AJN Book of the Year Awards in Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing. "I welcome, at long last, a book on global mental health targeted to nurses, the front-line health worker for billions of people around the world.? The roles that nurses can, and should, play in mental health care are diverse and this book addresses both well-trod as well as emerging concerns across the continuum of care from promotion to prevention to treatment. Importantly, at the heart of this diversity is the foundation of compassion and care, the hallmark of the nursing profession." – Vikram Patel, Professor of International Mental Health and Wellcome Trust Principal Research Fellow in Clinical Science, Centre for Global Mental Health, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UK Psychiatric disorders have consistently been identified as serious and significant global burdens of disease, yet meeting the needs of people in mental distress has not often been a priority in health care. This important reference work sets out the knowledge base for understanding the state of mental health care globally, and translating that into effective practice. The Handbook provides a historical and contemporary context of mental health care, identifies and discusses evidence-based standards of care and strategies for mental health promotion and explores the need to deliver care from interdisciplinary and community-based models, placing these imperatives within a human rights and empowerment framework. It is made up of four core sections which look at: Key and emerging issues that affect global mental health practice and research, including the social context of health; Evidence-based health promotion strategies for major areas of practice internationally; A range of country studies, reflecting different problems and approaches to mental health and mental health care internationally; and What constitutes empowering practice. The only comprehensive work looking at global perspectives on mental health nursing, this is an invaluable reference for all students, academics and professionals involved in mental health research with an interest in global or cross-cultural issues.

Named a 2013 Doody's Core Title! 2012 Second Place AJN Book of the Year Award Winner in Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing! "This is truly a contribution to the hands-on clinical literature....This book can serve as a resource for nurses working in inpatient psychiatry, nursing students, and nursing faculty who teach undergraduate psychiatric nursing."--Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries "[A] great book for inpatient psychiatric nurses."--Doody's Medical Reviews Psychiatric nursing practice has changed dramatically over the past decades to accommodate vast changes in our health care system. The patients who now meet the level of care standards for an acute care setting have to be very ill and typically exhibit considerable behavioral impairments and multiple safety issues. This handbook for psychiatric nurses and nursing students reflects these changes and focuses on four particularly challenging aspects of acute psychiatric nursing practice: keeping the patient safe, stabilizing symptoms, promoting engagement in treatment, and discharge planning. In a systematic, easy-to-access format, the book offers proven, clinically useful interventions designed to modify and manage disruptive patient behavior. Also included is a chapter on overcoming oneís own barriers to effective nursing in the difficult psychiatric environment. This important interdisciplinary clinical resource grew from a forum of Butler Hospital nurses who convened over a two-year period to identify and explore successful interventions used in the inpatient psychiatric acute care setting. The guide represents a collaboration between these health care professionals and their colleagues at the University of Rhode Island McLean Hospital, New York Presbyterian Hospital, and the Institute of Living. Key Features: Provides practice-based evidence and clinically useful interventions designed to modify and manage challenging and disruptive patient behavior Represents interdisciplinary collaborative work among staff nurses, advanced practice nurses, psychiatrists, social workers, occupational therapists, and psychologists Presents clinical practice savvy equally useful to new psychiatric nurses and nursing students Disseminates information in an easy-to-access, consistent format This book is also available as part of a discounted set.
