4037: Engaging Psychiatric Patients and their Families in Recovery & Wellness Through the Promotion of the RN at the Bedside
The most important relationship in behavioral health nursing is the nurse-patient relationship. Operationalizing Relationship Based Nursing enhances the relationship and accountability between RN and ancillary staff and also enhances accountability between the patient and nurse. This allows the nurse to actualize his/her practice and work with the patient towards recovery and wellness.
