The closure of psychiatric and mental handicap hospitals, the emphasis on community rather than hospital care and the distinction between health and social care for people in the community, with its funding implications, have demanded that mental health and learning disability nurses face the challenges of developing new skills and new ways of working.
In this paper the findings of a study funded by the English National Board for Nursing, Midwifery and Health Visiting (ENB) are reported.
This study explored the impact of these reforms on nurses and their practice, and identified the educational needs of mental health and learning disability nurses that have changed as a result.
The study took a multiple-case study approach and involved interviews with 22'key informants'and 88 mental health and 59 learning disability stakcholders in six sites, three in each nursing specialty.
Inductive analysis of the interview data revealed 20 categories which summarize the major issues facing the two nursing specialties.
These categories are discussed under seven themes and issues for nurse education are raised.
