About this book


In line with the recommendations of Project 2000 and the 1982 RMN syllabus this is an important new book which takes a fresh look at the requirements of trainee psychiatric nurses and their teachers. The book is divided into two parts. Part One - Concepts, establishes the nurses approach to psychiatric care as an individual and as a member of a team. Part Two - Care, explores the application of concepts through numerous patient profiles and care plans based on conceptual models. The text is well illustrated and attractively designed throughout. The author, Peggy Martin, is closely involved in nurse training and, as well as being aware of the needs of the practising nurse, has a strong commitment to Peplau's developmental model which she has used in this book.
