Assessment and Decision Making in Mental Health Nursing

Sandra Clare Walker, Diane Carpenter, Yvonne Middlewick

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Assessment is an essential part of mental-health nursing and as such a core learning requirement for pre-registration nursing students. Getting assessment right is essential for the nursing student in order for them to become an effective practitioner. Many books on assessment are very theoretical. This is a practical, hands-on guide to the assessment process, underpinned by the latest evidence. The book explains the core principles through running case studies, so that readers can see how each decision they make impacts on the person in their care.
