Description:
The setting-up of the 1978 Study Group by the Department of Health, with the agreement of the Chief Executive Officers of the health boards, highlighted in a special way the important role of the psychiatric nurse in the future development of the community psychiatric services. The Report of the Study Group made a significant contribution towards formalising the role of the community psychiatric nurse in each health board, particularly in the context of the method of appointment, status, training, and principal duties. The following recommendations from the 1978 Report serve as a backdrop to the present Report: "The care of the mentally ill person requires a degree of specialisation which only the psychiatric nurse is in a position to give. The principle duties of the community nurse will involve participating in the prevention of psychiatric illness, in detecting developing illness and in minimising the effects of psychiatric illness on the family.
