Advanced practice psychiatric-mental health nursing in a community-based nurse-managed primary care program.
1 One of the contributions of a community-based nurse managed primary care practice is that it serves as a laboratory for faculty, staff, students and the community to experiment with integrated models of health care delivery. 2 The case for primary health care as an avenue to needed mental health services is strong.
Early recognition and treatment of mental health problems in primary care settings prevents needless suffering, decreases the severity of the impairment and contains treatment cost. 3 Education for all health care professionals working in primary care settings lags behind practice initiatives.
Some of the identified curriculum gaps are relationship building, practice management, time and resource allocation, team practice, evidence based clincial decision making and management of patients in the system.
