Description:
There have been many advances in the care of people with mental health problems in recent years. Those at the forefront of the changes have called for a reduction in the emphasis on medication-based treatments and for the introduction of more interventions based on a psychosocial approach. Despite this, psychopharmacology remains the main treatment for most people in mental distress. The role of the mental health nurse in the administration of medications has become increasingly complex, given the range of preparations available and their potential to induce adverse and toxic effects in susceptible individuals.
