Collaborative Teamwork in Mental Health
This session is an opportunity for nursing, pharmacy, occupational therapy and clinical psychology students to work in partnership with a person with lived experience of mental health difficulties to develop the skills required for person-centred care planning.
By the end of the session students will have:
- Gained greater insight into the clinical communication skills required to work in a person-centred manner
- Participated in shared decision making with a patient and fellow healthcare students, in the development of a care plan
- Increased understanding of differing roles and responsibilities in the health care team
- Learnt about the principles of recovery as they relate to the service user
Key to this activity is working in a person-centred way using the underlying principles of recovery. Students are expected to explore the service user’s personal values, strengths and aspirations. This will then inform the collaborative development of a suggested plan of care.
Following this activity students are required to reflect upon their learning and identify what they will take forward into future practice.
