In step with the dramatic changes in inpatient psychiatric nursing that have occurred in recent decades, this handbook describes numerous interventions that have been successfully used in inpatient psychiatric acute care settings. The text addresses the myriad of difficulties encountered by psychiatric nurses, who must deal with a wide range of patient symptoms while simultaneously managing a complex, constantly changing environment. It focuses on the goals of keeping the patient safe, stabilizing symptoms, and promoting engagement in treatment, while covering the management of specific behaviors likely to be encountered in psychiatric settings along with successful intervention techniques.This book grew from a forum of Butler Hospital (Providence, RI) nurses who came together over a two-year period to identify and describe successful interventions used in the inpatient psychiatric acute care setting. It represents a collaboration of Butler Hospital nurses with the Institute of Living (Hartford, CT), New York Presbyterian Hospital (NYC), the University of Rhode Island (Providence), and Mclean Hospital (Belmont, MA). Designed for use by nursing students and new nurses, the text is organized in an easy access format that includes description and context of behavior, nursing care goals, and sub goals. Goals are further organized around assessment and key nursing interventions.Key Features: Presents evidence-based, clinically useful interventions designed to modify and manage disruptive patient behaviorOffers clinical practice savvy useful to new nurses and nursing studentsBased on the interdisciplinary, collective wisdom of multiple psychiatric nursing settingsGrounded in the nursing care goals of safety, stabilization, and engagementPresented in a well organized, easy-to-access format
