Hello Fellow Psych Nurses!
I'm Carmela Martin, a PMH nurse in Los Angeles, CA and currently taking my MSN at Mount Saint Mary's College. I am in the process of writing my thesis on what mental health nurses perceive as barriers to conducting a thorough suicide assessment, and this is where I really need your help.
As mental health nurses we are passionate in ensuring that every suicide assessment we conduct is as thorough and complete as possible, but unfortunately, there are still patients that slips through the cracks. My hope is that this research project will add to the body of knowledge that is suicide assessment, but I wouldn't be able to do it without your input. The link to the survey is below. It's brief and wouldn't take more than 10 minutes. I would be posting the link on this forum for three weeks starting today (August 29), till September 16. As a thank you, you have a chance to win a $100 Amazon Gift Card after survey completion, every week! Thank you so much! https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/C35PXYF
