Mental health liaison simulation
Psychiatry Liaison Nurses are on the frontline in assessment of complex mental health presentations in acute hospitals. They are key in assessing mental state, risk and formulating management plans but also in providing acute hospital staff with support and guidance in navigating patient care. This full day face-to-face simulation course will provide participants with the opportunity to be involved in a range of simulated scenarios and debriefs based on common but challenging liaison presentations. Participants will develop a broad understanding of how to assess and manage patients presenting with psychiatric conditions in medical settings.
- Build on skills and confidence in assessing, diagnosing, and managing patients presenting with psychiatric conditions in medical settings, often with comorbid physical health conditions.
- Work more effectively with colleagues, including those from other specialties, demonstrating improved communication and collaboration skills to help teams sensitively treat psychiatric patients in medical settings.
- Undertake complex risk assessments communicating these with the wider teams and utilising the assessment to formulate a plan.
- Improve confidence and knowledge of The Mental Capacity Act and The Mental Health Act and its use within the medical setting.
- Develop an ability to manage complex family situations and dynamics.
- Develop an appreciation of working with uncertainty, managing countertransference and the importance of self-care and wellbeing.
