A new framework has been developed for person-centred mental health care planning in Tayside.
Mental Health Nursing Standards for Person Centred Care Planning aims to support the development of person centred care plans and will enable a consistently high quality approach to care planning for nurses working in all mental health settings within NHS Tayside.
Nurse Director Gillian Costello said, “I am delighted to endorse the Mental Health Nursing Standards for Person Centred Care Planning developed for use across our Mental Health services in Tayside.
“Person Centred Care Planning is a fundamental role for mental health nurses and these standards recognise the importance of working in partnership with people to engender hope, opportunity and promote recovery.
“The standards recognise the diversity and uniqueness of individuals and ensure that what matters to the person is a key consideration within their care plan.
“I would like to thank all the mental health nurses who have been involved in the development of the standards through the Care Planning Collaborative and the Care Plan Audit Tool Short Life Working Group. In particular, senior nurse practice development Jenny MacDonald, for her leadership in the development of the standards.”
