'This exciting new book for pre-registration students of mental health nursing has a fresh, contemporary feel, and engages the reader throughout with points for reflection and learning. With chapter contributions from an impressive team of leaders in the field this deserves to be widely read and used, and I commend this publication without reservation.'Dr Ben Hannigan Senior Lecturer, Cardiff University School of Nursing and Midwifery Studies
A very useful book for evidence based mental health nursing. Recommended for mental health student nurses.
this has been well adopted by my students as it is an easy read with an exceptional ability to meet all learning needs.
An excellent text for those wishing to work within Mental Health Services. Client centred with clear guidance on the reflective aspect of mental health nursing, this book supports both student and practitioner to develop their skills in line with current evidence-based research. . I will be recommending this book for all my students.
Excellent book which is appropriate for Pre & Post registration nursing. Reflections and case scenarios are helpful tools for the students.
This text is an excellent all-rounder when looking at placing the service-user at the centre of care delivery. It gives good pointers and advice to students and it could be used as a resource for all mental heath nurses.
Excellent book very student friendly will be highly recommended for students going into mental health nursing. The book provides excellent coverage of many of the skills needed in mental health nursing. Excellent diagrams. Book will be highly recommended
As this is a specific text, I will place it on my recommend reading list as not all of my Lifelong learners will be mental health nurses. On saying this however, it would give the novice a good overview and allow the newly qualified nurse to take their learning and skills a step further.
Useful in a number of modules on the course.
A useful resource for student nurses to access during their three year programme, especially to enable them to understand evidence-based practice and utilise for their practice based tasks.
This is an excellent book that details different theoretical perspectives and core values of mental health nursing.
It offers evidence based approaches to working with people with mental health issues and as such in invaluable to pre-registration students.
I highly recommend this book and as such have listed it as essential reading for my students.
Provides a fantastic overview of the evidence base process in mental health nursing as well as a complete explanation for pre-reg students into the practices of the mental health nurse.
This book is a clear contemorary addition to our bookshelves. Is clearly prioritises the key concepts relevant to working in this area and to interested students. The first chapter on theoretical perspectives has been particularly useful so far in initiating debate for our Foundation Degree students in mental health.
I found the book extremely useful. I particularly liked the reflection, discussion points and case scenarios. The wording was easy to understand and the information in the boxes straight to the point. The book also gave plenty of further reading and resources. Altogether a good read to help me with my course.
To run side by side with Leadership and Management (Level 5) courses. Students would be wise to keep the book within close range. I could not put it down! This book would be helpful to anybody who is working in Mental Ill Health (and some LD) contexts.
Very good book that introduces students to the area of mental health nursing. It starts from the very basics and moves on from there.
Since reading the book and talking to colleagues within the college and lecturers at universities, have recently found that it is a recommended text for the first year of Mental Health Nursing course at the university.
I found this to be a most interesting text book, not just for Nursing Students but also for those underataking Level 3/5 Diplomas in Health and Social Care, where receivers of the Care have Mental ill Health. It is set out in a way that vocational learners will appreciate. The book offers theory and competence. Certainly recommended to my HND/HNC students.
This book is really focussed on the needs of mental health nurses, however it also provides a very good supplement resource to the adult nurse who is unfamiliar with mental nursing concepts and practices. The text is well written, relatively easy to understand. The case scenarios are particularly intersting and should stimulate good debate in classroom settings. The other illustrations, tables, graphs used etc are also invaluable in helping the reader to quickly appreciate some of the main themes presented in the text.
A very accessible introduction to Mental Health Nursing which is both contemporary and comprehensive in its content. Offers a good grounding in the knowledge base required by the student.
A very good book for each advanced practice psychiatric nurse
