2054-18 & 3013-18: Mini Concurrent Sessions: Education
2054-18: Exploring the Thinking, Reasoning and Clinical Approach of Expert, Advanced Practice Child Psychiatric Nurses | 3013-18: Simulation Training to Improve Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Resident Adherence to Veteran Affairs/Department of Defense Clinical Practice Guidelines for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
This mini concurrent session includes two presentations (described below) plus Q&A
2054-18: Exploring the Thinking, Reasoning and Clinical Approach of Expert, Advanced Practice Child Psychiatric Nurses
Techniques used in working with an adult population in mental health are not always appropriate in a pediatric population. Learn how advance practice psychiatric nurses working with children shape their interventions to meet the needs of their patients.
Presenters: Kathleen R. Delaney, PhD, PMH-NP, RN; Diana McIntosh, PhD, APRN, PMHCNS-BC
3013-18: Simulation Training to Improve Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Resident Adherence to Veteran Affairs/Department of Defense Clinical Practice Guidelines for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
This presentation introduces simulation-based training as strategy to improve mental health nurse practitioner adherence to clinical practice guidelines. Simulation training decreases known barriers to clinician guideline adherence: lack of provider awareness, provider time constraints, provider skepticism about the evidence used to support guidelines, and organizational systems change resistance.
Presenter: Charleen Angell, DNP, APRN, PMHCNS-BC
