Psychiatric primary care
Published on Dec 9, 2013
This valuable new resource provides basic mental health care information to assist advanced practice nurses in family and adult care with the assessment, treatment and referral of patients with mental disorders or psychosocial problems. Professionals practising in primary settings will be helped by the jargon-free, practical, and concise presentation of information. Foundational chapters review basic mental health concepts, skills, interventions, and severe mental illness. Mental health disorders and behaviours most likely to be seen in a primary care setting, such as depression and substance abuse, are discussed in-depth.
