PRI staff who care for adults with mental and physical health issues are encouraged to complete a short survey around mental health in acute hospitals.
The Education Needs survey is aimed at staff working in Wards 1, 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8 at Perth Royal Infirmary, as well as A&E, Stroke Ward, Tay Ward and Hospital at Night.
The closing date for the survey has been extended to Monday, 9 April 2018 and can be accessed here or on the Staffnet noticeboard. It takes no more than 10 minutes to complete and all responses are anonymous.
The Treat as One event held in December aimed to bridge the gap in care for adults with both mental and physical health issues in acute hospital settings.
Associate Nurse Director Jim Foulis said, “As a member of staff working in Perth Royal Infirmary you were recently invited to participate in a survey monkey exercise to gauge your current knowledge about the mental health conditions patients may have within your ward or clinical area.
“This survey is important if we are to identify any education and training that would be useful to you in your role in delivering safe and effective care for people with coexisting physical and mental health conditions in Perth Royal Infirmary.
“It is really important we receive as many returns as possible so we can accurately identify gaps in awareness, knowledge and skills, and plan targeted education that you can access easily on the PRI site.”
