A person-centred resource essential for Australian students
This textbook is designed to support students in diploma and degree level mental health nursing courses. Reader-friendly and concise, it promotes skilled engagement, collaborative assessment and care planning, as well as emphasising the need for self-awareness and effective communication.
Written in collaboration with accomplished nurse educators and practitioners, Mental Health Nursing delivers a complete framework to prepare nurses for working in mental health. Australian practice is at the core of the text and it includes a special focus on gerontological issues.
Key Features:

  • Australian best practice is emphasised throughout, with demographic, institutional, legislative and cultural references.
  • Drug Alerts highlight essential points about psychotropic drugs.
  • Nursing Care Plans provide treatment plans with guidance on assessment, outcomes and implementation.
