Mental Health Nurses require a diverse skills base to aid service users and their carers on their journey to recovery. During their training, students need to acquire and demonstrate skills to show that the care they provide is evidence-based and effective. Skills as diverse as assessment, forming therapeutic interactions, caring for physical and mental health needs as well as leadership and management, can be difficult to learn and master - until now! Mental Health Nursing Skills provides students with a highly evidence-based and practical account of the skills required for nursing practice. Written in response to the Chief Nursing Officer's review of Mental Health Nursing in England and that of the Scottish Executive, the authors translate theory into clearly applied skills supported by practice examples, tips and online activities. By inviting contributions from nursing academics, researchers and practitioners this text reflects the best of theory and practice. Each chapter discusses the policy and evidence base for each skill, so students know their practice is rigorous, before outlining a step-by-step description of that skill.' Practice Example and Tips' boxes demonstrate how the skill can be used on placements. Students can develop their skills through online quizzes, scenarios and activities on a free dedicated Online Resource Centre, which also provides updates on evidence, clinical guidelines and protocols every six months. Clearly mapped against all the benchmarks expected by professional nursing bodies and suitable for all settings, Mental Health Nursing Skills provides a high quality and student friendly account of the skills that are required for nursing practice. Online Resource Centre For students: * Interactive scenarios and quizzes help students to consolidate and apply their learning in a safe environment * Interactive glossary explains terminology and jargon * Evidence, guidelines and policy will be reviewed and updated every 6 months online For lecturers: * Figures from the book

I wish I had bought this book at the start of my nursing degree rather than at the end of nearly 3 years training. If you're starting a mental health nursing course get it. amazon.co.uk reviewer The authors have addressed complex topics in a very informative and engaging way. The use of scenarios and on-line tests will enable achievement of the mental health competencies required of modern day practice. I believe this book has the potential to become the key text for mental health nurses. I would have no hesitation in recommending this text to mental health nursing students. Dr Steve Tee, Senior Lecturer in Mental Health Nursing, Southampton University School of Nursing and Midwifery I feel this is very up to date and easy to understand. 10/10 I would give this book to any student on placement with me and to a recently qualified nurse. Mr James Eley, Senior Community Mental Health Nurse, Norfolk and Waveney Mental health Partnership NHS Trust, UK It is made very clear how what the student does in placement links to standards and values set out in policy guidelines, which in turn links very clearly to their role as qualified professionals...this could be the main text for the mental health branch programme and subsequently a helpful reference text for the rest of their training. Sattish Harbance-Singh, Lecturer and Practitioner, Salford University, UK
