Mental health nursng in UK

  1. HI EVERYONE I'M AFRAID I'M THE NEW BOY ON THE BLOCK, AND I WOULD BE FASCINATED TO TALK WITH ANYONE CURRENTLY WORKING IN UK AS A MENTAL HEALTH NURSE. I AM IN MY LAST SIX MONTHS OF MY COURSE AND AM CURRENTLYLOOKING AT MENTAL HEALTH POLICY AND GUIDELINES. I JUST WONDERED IF ANY ONE HAD A GOOD IDEA FOR WHICH POLICY OR PROTOCOL WITHIN MENTAL HEALTH WOULD B GOOD TO EXPLORE WTH REGARD TO QUALITY OF CARE. PS SORRY ABOUT THE CAPITAL LETTERS I'VE ONLY JUST NOTICED

    Hi m8,

    I'm a CPN of some eleven years at 'G' grade. I'm currently finishing my BSc (Hons) Specialist Nurse Practitioner in community nursing. What about looking at the government white paper on compulsory treatment orders (CTOs)? There's loads of evidence from the USA, Israel, NZ & Aus (I think) and more recently Canada. I've just done a teaching session at the university for third years on it.

    Good luck!

    Mike
