2021: Using Psychiatric Practitioner Memoirs as a Teaching Strategy
Reading memoirs by psychiatric practitioners is a valuable learning activity. Fourteen memoirs were reviewed for clinical accuracy, clinical relevancy, positive role-modeling, patient advocacy, and promotion of a positive image of nursing. Reactions to two of the books used has been very positive; recommendations are given for using selected memoirs as a learning activity in the university or staff development setting.
