The future of community psychiatric nursing: some research findings

  • Peter Tyrer (a1) and Michael Gelder (a1)
Extract

A workshop organised by the Research Committee of the College took place on 20 November 1989, in which 14 invited delegates from nursing, psychiatry and general practice presented and discussed the implications of recent research developments in community psychiatric nursing. Papers were given by Helen Hally, Chairman of the Community Psychiatric Nurses Association, on recent developments in the workload of community psychiatric nurses. Dr Joseph Connolly presented the preliminary findings of the ‘Daily Living Project’ at the Maudsley Hospital in which comprehensive community care is given primarily by community psychiatric nurses. Professor Brandon outlined some of the difficulties in obtaining data on the working practices of community psychiatric nurses arising from a study in Leicester and this was followed by an account by Dr Alastair Wright, a general practitioner in Glenrothes, Fife, of the typical psychiatric workload of a general practitioner and the ways in which community psychiatric nurses may be of value in treating this without the necessity of referral to psychiatric care.
