Succinctly identifies the context of policy and ideology in support of working with service users, and where mental health and learning disability nursing has value and relevance
Identifies the priorities for leadership capability across primary, secondary and tertiary health services

Illustrates strategies to promote leadership capability across mental health and learning disability nursing

The book clearly locates where the challenges are not only in the present within mental health and learning disability nursing, but in terms of leadership and professional nurse imperatives for the future in support of, and working in partnership with service users and other stakeholders.

Scope and contents

This text gives a succinct account on where leadership is to be focused in such a transitional sea of policy and ideological shifts never before witnessed to such a radical degree of implementation. Both mental health and learning disability nurses are being challenged in terms of where they appear to be best placed. A raft of policies has resulted in nurses addressing and collaborating with a new host of commissioning bodies and having to respond to vulnerability; within an increasing hostile society, and where social exclusion is being overtly presented in a variety of environments and situations.

The book focuses on primary, secondary and tertiary concerns and challenges as they impact upon people with mental health needs and learning disabilities, and chapters will be written by experienced practitioners and academics across both fields where the intention will be to emphasise the need for not only clear clinical leadership but also the call for further integration and collaboration across services.
