J Psychiatr Ment Health Nurs 2018 Dec 2. Epub 2018 Dec 2.

Senior Nurse, NHS Tayside.

Self-harm is common on mental health wards; an unsurprising fact given that the patient group comprises some of the most unwell people from the local community.

J Psychiatr Ment Health Nurs 2018 Nov 9. Epub 2018 Nov 9.

Spitzer Department of Social Work, Ben Gurion University of the Negev, Beer-Sheva, Israel.

WHAT IS KNOWN ON THE SUBJECT?: Recovery-oriented care is a means of providing mental health treatment, focused on the patient's individual needs and active involvement in one's own care. However, this approach presents with challenges, particularly in psychiatric hospitals, which tend to be focused on symptom reduction. WHAT DOES THE PAPER ADDS TO EXISTING KNOWLEDGE?: This study examines the influence of three different recovery-oriented training programmes/interventions (namely, illness management and recovery, peer support, and psychiatric advance directives) on the attitudes and practice of mental health staff (including nurses) in an inpatient setting, using a mixed-methods methodology.

Mental Health Nursing, Abertay University, Dundee, UK.

WHAT IS KNOWN ON THE SUBJECT?: Nurses in mental health inpatient settings use a range of methods to try and help service users who self-harm Harm-reduction approaches are intended to help service users reduce the impact of their self-harm rather than simply to prevent them self-harming Harm-reduction techniques might be helpful for people who cut themselves because there are some clear ways harm can be minimized such as providing advice about cutting No one has previously tried to measure whether harm-reduction techniques are more or less acceptable to mental health practitioners and service users than traditional methods. WHAT THE PAPER ADDS TO EXISTING KNOWLEDGE?: The paper describes the development of the Attitudes to Self-cutting Management scale. It met the criteria required of a good measurement tool. Read More

Trinity Centre for Practice and Healthcare Innovation, School of Nursing and Midwifery, Trinity College Dublin, The University of Dublin, Dublin 2, IRL.

WHAT IS KNOWN ABOUT THE SUBJECT?: First-episode psychosis (FEP) usually occurs in adolescence, a time of great change and upheaval and the effect on the sufferer and their family can be immense The nurse's role is to alleviate this suffering, aid recovery and minimize the risk of relapse.

School of Health Sciences, University of Nottingham, Nottingham, UK.

WHAT IS KNOWN ON THE SUBJECT?: Research has consistently shown that poor attitudes exist in mental health care towards people with a diagnosis of personality disorder and that nurses can find working with this group of patients professionally and personally challenging. Power imbalances of practitioner over students exist on training placements. This can result in students being exposed to negative attitudes towards service users with a diagnosis of personality disorder and not feeling able to challenge these attitudes. Read More

ACT Academy, NHS Improvement, Coventry, UK.

WHAT IS KNOWN ON THE SUBJECT?: User involvement, when people who have accessed services become actively involved in aspects of mental health care, can sometimes be "tokenistic" and not well thought through. Users are often involved in their own care, and asked for feedback, but are less likely to be meaningfully involved in developing services and training staff. WHAT THIS PAPER ADDS TO EXISTING KNOWLEDGE?: To implement meaningful involvement, it is important to know why some users choose to devote time to such activities. Read More

The health professional experience of using antipsychotic medication for dementia in care homes: A study using grounded theory and focussing on inappropriate prescribing.

J Psychiatr Ment Health Nurs 2018 Jun;25(5-6):307-318

University of Reading, Reading, Berkshire, UK.

What Is Known On The Subject: People with dementia can experience symptoms that upset them and upset the people who care for them To cope, care homes sometimes use strong medicines called antipsychotics but these can make people with dementia become more ill We do not know just why doctors and nurses caring for people with dementia still use these strong medicines more than they need to WHAT THE PAPER ADDS TO EXISTING KNOWLEDGE: Giving antipsychotics can make it easier to care for residents within busy care homes, so people tend to see and remember the benefits of antipsychotics The harm of antipsychotics is noticed less, meaning carers will use them again, in a "vicious circle" WHAT ARE THE IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE: If these medicines worked before it does not make them the right choice again It might help to show carers very clearly the harms from using these medicines, to stress the dangers ABSTRACT: Introduction Treating the behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia with antipsychotics can cause detrimental side-effects but their use in care homes remains problematic with the views of professionals not fully explored.

Aim/question: To develop an in-depth explanatory model about inappropriate prescribing of antipsychotics in dementia within care homes.

Methods: Twenty-eight participants from eight different professional groups with a role in shaping treatment decisions in dementia care were recruited and interviewed. Read More

Psychiatric Nursing, Faculty of Nursing, Akdeniz University, Antalya, Türkiye.

WHAT IS KNOWN ON THE SUBJECT?: Although it is well known that coping with mental disorder is a traumatic experience, studies of the relationships between posttraumatic growth and the variables that can affect it are rarely found in the literature.

Communication Sciences and Disorders, University of South Florida, Tampa, FL, USA.

What Is Known On The Subject: Person-centered care, as compared to standard approaches, is a widely accepted, evidence-based approach for managing aggressive behaviour in persons with dementia. The attitudes, beliefs and values of long-term care and mental health nursing employees are important prerequisites to implementing person-centered practices. Research shows that nursing employees typically support person-centered approaches; however, less is known about the attitudes of non-nursing employee groups. Read More

School of Social and Health Sciences, Abertay University, Dundee, UK.

WHAT IS KNOWN ON THE SUBJECT?: It is generally felt that it is helpful for mental health nurses to control their emotions during their work.

J Psychiatr Ment Health Nurs 2018 Apr 15;25(3):167-175. Epub 2018 Feb 15.

The Research Unit for General Practice and Section of General Practice, Institute of Public Health, University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark.

WHAT IS KNOWN ON THE SUBJECT?: In collaborative care models between psychiatry and general practice, mental health nurses are used as care managers who carry out the treatment of patients with anxiety or depression in general practice and establish a collaborating relationship with the general practitioner. Although the care manager is the key person in the collaborative care model, there is little knowledge about this role and the challenges involved in it. WHAT THIS PAPER ADDS TO EXISTING KNOWLEDGE?: Our study shows that before the CMs could start treating patients in a routine collaborative relationship with GPs, they needed to carry out an extensive amount of implementation work.
