The Goal

Need for Program

People who enter a general healthcare setting with a physical health complication and have a concurrent mental illness must receive comprehensive care. The ability of nurses and other health professionals to provide holistic health care to all people with a co-existing mental illness is highly dependent on a sound knowledge base. There is a timely need for an evidence-based update on a range of common mental health disorders and conditions so that health professionals are better positioned and informed to support a person with a mental illness.

Purpose of Program

To provide nurses and other health professionals who work across a range of general healthcare settings with a comprehensive update on common mental illnesses so as to improve a person’s health outcomes.

Your learning outcomes:

1
Give a trauma-informed approach to people in your care who have a concurrent mental illness
2
Improve your understanding of mental illness to result in greater patient satisfaction in general healthcare environments
3
Provide a feeling of safety and security to people hospitalised with a physical health complication who have a concurrent mental illness as a result of practical techniques being employed
4
Establish clear personal boundaries and maintain them to promote a strong, safe therapeutic alliance
