A case is made for a collaborative model of clinical practice led by a mental health nurse. The model is to result from an investigation into whether a ward-based mental health nurse can alleviate the emotional pressures on nurses who work in older persons acute wards and care for patients with dementia.
The envisaged role of the ward-based mental health nurse is to deliver consistent one-to-one mental health care to older persons with dementia, thereby supporting nurses to deliver physical care that remains compassionate and is more fulfilling. In progress.
