1035: A Neuroscience Relationship-Based Framework for Psychiatric Nursing
A relationship-based model with a hierarchical treatment framework for psychiatric nursing practice is presented through a synthesis of relevant theory and neurobiology. Phases of treatment are delineated with therapeutic communication strategies and specific interventions for each phase described. This framework, embedded within a holistic nursing paradigm, provides a compass for basic and advanced levels of practice in all settings.
