The nature of mental health nurses' knowledge
Barker, Janet H. (2002) The nature of mental health nurses' knowledge. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
There is a need to develop a clear understanding of the knowledge used by mental health nurses in day to day practice. Knowledge relating to holistic/therapeutic activities form the basis of mental health nurse education, however various studies have consistently shown the majority of mental health nurses activity relates to administrative and routine tasks and containment. This disparity between the knowledge bases prescribed, those described and the inability of education reforms to resolve such inconsistencies suggests other influences are at work.
