NS 858 - Complex Psychiatric Mental Health Concepts

In this third of four courses, the learner’s experience will further refine his or her ability to employ holistic and interdisciplinary health care management strategies to manage the healthcare of care of diverse psychiatric-mental health populations across the lifespan. Using the experience obtained in the first two courses, the learner will expand his or her ability to apply competencies pertaining to the assessment and collaborative treatment of diverse psychiatric-mental health populations across the lifespan by forming increasingly complex differential diagnoses through the analysis of patient health data. Students will apply the content of previous courses to generate collaborative healthcare management strategies for diverse psychiatric-mental health clients across the lifespan that incorporate the domains of nursing practice, medical, pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies. Caring and its role in safe, high-quality, evidence-based practice is threaded throughout the course.
