Description:
Despite the current emphasis on safety planning and positive risk, limited research exists into how mental health nurses conceptualise ‘risk’ and how they engage with risk assessment and safety planning within an organisational context. This report presents the findings of a study undertaken that explored practices, policies and processes around risk assessment and safety management within mental health nursing in a number of mental health services in Ireland, with a view to informing recommendations on policy, practice and education in the area of risk assessment and safety planning.
