Counseling Points™: Shedding the Label of Schizophrenia through the Recovery Model Digital Publication
This Counseling Points topic was originally presented by the American Psychiatric Nurses Association at the APNA 26th Annual Conference. It seeks to educate APNA members and other psychiatric nurses about the value and benefits of the recovery model in supporting persons with schizophrenia. Through this Counseling Points Digital Publication we hope to enable learners to take a leadership role in the implementation of effective patient-centered care.
