This module will support the development of mental health health needs assessment and implementing approaches to support mental health improvement. Through the exploration of models and approaches to assessing and planning care you will enhance your skills in mental, physical, cognitive and behavioural health needs assessment. The module will enable you to develop an understanding of the continuum of mental health and illness and to implement safe evidence based responses when caring for people experiencing changes to their mental health status.
This module enables you to independently, consistently and confidently assess, plan, implement and evaluate safe and effective interventions for individuals experiencing an alteration to their mental health status, taking into account co-morbidities and differential diagnosis. Within the module you will explore the impact human factors and organisational culture has upon clinical decision making and will identify the evidence base and professional frameworks underpinning effective practice decisions.
