Community and Mental Health Nursing Practice is a synthesis unit which builds on the knowledge and skills already developed in the BN program. This unit applies a primary health care and health promotion approach to studying nursing practice in various community and mental health care settings. It provides an opportunity for students to develop an understanding of community based health issues, together with an appreciation of the particular needs of people whose lives are affected by mental health problems and mental illness. In focus are the role and responsibilities of nurses in community and mental health settings and the way in which skills gained in these areas apply to other areas of practice.
A number of conceptual frameworks will be explored including the determinants of health, chronic disease self-management, recovery care and the Community Practice Nursing Intervention model (CPNI). Mental health and illness is considered in the context of co-morbidities treated across a continuum of care.
