Recent mental health policy has focused on developing community-based services, while the reality remains that patients experiencing acute episodes of illness are mainly cared for in hospital. Acute Mental Health Nursing has been developed as a guide to the core knowledge and skills required for working in inpatient settings. Drawing on the latest developments in policy and planning this seminal text addresses issues which are specific to working in inpatient settings. It has been designed for use in training and is also an excellent source of reference for use in practice.
