From the Author:

This text provides an excellent review of the central issues
Crisis and risk management is a significant area of growing importance to mental health nurses. Managing Crisis and Risk in Mental Health Nursing has been written by an experienced team of mental health nurses who provide a comprehensive review of the context within which complex decision-making takes place. The book commences with a foreword by Professor Tony Butterworth and goes on to deal with situations which are handled by mental health nurses on a daily basis, and offers commentary and strategic help in crisis and risk management.

Individual chapters address the particular issues faced in dealing with patients and clients with the most prevalent mental health problems. The text examines the contextual and decision-making basis for crisis and risk management including risk knowledge, learning from inquiries, policy and legislative issues and the organizational responses to crisis and risk management. Clinical practice issues that are addressed include working with people who experience schizophrenia, depression and manic-depression. Management of self-harm, suicide and violence are also covered. The way that nurses can manage crisis and risk associated with mentally disordered offender and sex offenders are also considered. The book concludes with a section that covers areas of special interest such as the morality of risk management, the use of psychopharmacology, involving service users in risk assessment and management, and the use of clinical and actuarial methods of risk assessment. Case studies are also provided to provoke thought and consider best practice.
