CALHN Nursing Education Courses

Mental Health Skills for General Nurses

Workshop Aim

The program offers 12 x 60-minute sessions to equip Registered and Enrolled General Nurses to provide effective care to people with mental illnesses.  The sessions are facilitated by clinicians, predominantly from the CALHN Mental Health Clinical Program.  A variety of teaching methodologies will be utilized within the sessions.  Each session is self-contained and attendance at all sessions is not compulsory.  Attendees will be provided with a certificate of attendance and their attendance logged into the Learning Management System by the MHCP Learning Centre.  The program does not include Caring for Cognitive Impairment or aggression prevention and management as these important issues are being addressed through other strategies. The program will be conducted annually at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital with a subsequent program conducted Royal Adelaide Hospital.  Individual session evaluations will be focused on content, appropriateness and presentation.
