- ‘The culture of nursing, compassionate care systems and psychosis’
- Capitalising on the contribution of mental health nurses in psychosocial intervention implementation’
There are increasing calls for a paradigm shift in the way we deliver care for those who experience psychosis – moving from medical model understandings and treatment to a formulation based approach that draws on the individual’s lived experience. Such a shift is a challenge, requiring a willingness to respect, attend to, explore and respond empathetically to the narrative of the carer and service user.
This conference will provide an opportunity to explore these challenges and identify the implications for mental health nursing practice in collaboration with our multi-disciplinary teams, service users and carers.
Combining keynote presentations with opportunities for group discussion, we hope to highlight the ‘lived experience’ of mental health nursing, with an emphasis on capturing the current reality for nurses in practice and exploring our evolving role and opportunities for future directions.
