This framework pays close attention to the purpose of acute mental health care, the impact of the environment in which acute care is provided (whether this is in hospital or community), and the impact of acute care on peoples’ rights, recovery and relationships. The framework sets out a range of capabilities for all nurses working in acute care and then a further set of capabilities as nurse’s progress their careers. The framework is divided into four key areas: rights, values and recovery focused practice, supporting recovery from acute crisis, making a difference in acute care, and sharing positive risk taking. The framework can be used by nurses and service managers to guide personal development planning, by service users and their families/carers to explain the key skills, knowledge and attitudes that they should expect from nurses in acute care settings, or by education and training organisations to guide the development of training and educational activities and programmes specific to acute care.

A comparison of different models to meet the mental health needs of adults with intellectual disabilities

This paper aims to review the current knowledge on different ways of structuring psychiatric services to meet the needs of people with intellectual disability and co-morbid mental illness. It summarises the current debate and presents evidence from original research and opinion from clinical experience. It briefly at a number of different models, including: community care, community intellectual disability services, mainstream services, teritary' specialist services, in-patient care, generic vs specialist wards, specialist in-patient beds on general psychiatric wards, and emergency psychiatric services. The authors find a lack of robust research evidence to support any particular model of service provision. However, it seems to be increasingly accepted that purely generic models of care for people with intellectual disabilities and co-morbid mental illness are not appropriate. Integration of the expertise from specialist services within mainstream services is presented as potentially the most advantageous approach. (Edited publisher abstract)

In the United States, mental health care has undergone significant changes over the past several decades. Most notable are reduced reliance on inpatient psychiatric care, and more recently, a greater demand for the delivery of treatments that are evidence-based. However, few studies have examined outcomes of acute psychiatric hospitalisation among children, demonstrating change in emotional and behavioural functioning. A secondary analysis of pre/post-test data collected on 36 children was conducted, using the Target Symptom Rating (TSR). The TSR is a 13-item measure with two subscales – Emotional Problems and Behavioural Problems and was designed for evaluation of outcome among children and adolescents in acute inpatient psychiatric settings. Results of this study, its limitations, and the barriers encountered in the implementation of the TSR scale as part of routine clinical practice are discussed. Implications for research and practice are discussed.

Psychiatric rehospitalization for children and young people: implications for social work and intervention

Authors:
CHUNG Walter, et al
Journal article citation:
Child and Adolescent Social Work Journal, 25(6), December 2008, pp.483-496.
Publisher:
Springer

This study explored factors associated with the psychiatric rehospitalization of children and adolescents. A retrospective archival review was conducted on 403 children and adolescents admitted into an inpatient psychiatric hospital. Results indicated that 16% were readmitted in the same year. Children and adolescents who had a prior history of psychiatric rehospitalization, lived in a residential treatment facility, and had a diagnosis of oppositional/defiant or conduct disorder were more likely to be rehospitalized. Psychosocial factors must be considered in predicting and preventing psychiatric rehospitalization. Clinical social workers should include therapeutic foster care as an option for aftercare placements of youth exhibiting externalizing behaviours and/or with a history of multiple restrictive care placements.
