Our Nurses highlighted in Mental Health Practice Journal
19 September 2018
Our nursing development work and members of our outstanding nursing teams from CAISS and Gloucester House are profiled in the latest issue of the RCNI journal Mental Health Practice.
In the feature, Claire Shaw, head of nursing for Adult and Forensic Services here at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, discusses our work linking up with nurses outside the Trust, including our monthly Nursing in Mind event.
Antonia Carding, Alex
Duckworth, and Jonathan Creedy highlight their nursing work as part of
the multi-disciplinary work at Camden Adolescent Intensive Support
Service (CAISS), while Kirsty Brant discusses the vital work of a nurse
at Gloucester House.
CAISS is a multidisciplinary team
offering intensive support to young people in crisis to keep them safe and out
of hospital. The team features experts from
different specialties who work together to assess and treat patients,
nurses, psychiatrists, social workers and occupational therapists, and
works directly with Camden’s community mental health service, local
schools and other children’s services. In 2017, CAISS was shortlisted for Nursing Times 'Team of the Year'.
Gloucester House is a leading school for
children (aged 5-14yrs) with social, emotional and mental health
difficulties. Nursing plays a
critical element in our role to promote health and wellbeing in the
children who come here. This year Gloucester House celebrates its 50th anniversary with a special conference event.
