"Over 90 percent of people with mental health problems take medication. Nurses now have the authority to prescribe this medication should they so wish. However, all nurses have a duty of care to administer medication safely. The first section of this book provides a framework for this discussion by integrating the histories of psychopharmacology, mental health nursing and medication legislation. This provides the background for the second section of the book whereby prescribing decisions in schizophrenia, depression, anxiety and insomnia, are discussed."--BOOK JACKET.

"How useful is this book? I have referred to it often, and found myself quoting information and models of care from it. I lent it to a colleague to prepare a presentation on 'challenging behaviour' to our local carers' group and he thought it was an excellent resource. It is key reading for any mental health professional with an interest in improving the quality of life of people with dementia. I would recommend that all community teams have a copy." Dementia "Overall, this book is useful. It is well-indexed and has helpful summaries and sections on lessons for practice. It is to be hoped that the title will not deter clinicians other than nurses from reading it, as it will be of interest and of use to them too." mentalhealth today "This is an excellent reader aimed at a wide readership. I believe it is particularly appropriate for qualified staff in CMHTs, but also for mental health, occupational therapy and social work students as a comprehensive introductory text for mental health for older people in community settings."
