Public demand to reform the care and treatment of patients was underpinned by principles of universal human rights and equality. The hard edge of the service user movement has been 'softened' as an ever increasing number of activists have moved from the streets into the board room often into paid positions. Barker and Buchannan-Barker suggest that a consequence of this might be that service users have become ineffectual in their attempts to instigate change as they have become assimilated into a system they once resisted. Campbell suggests that service users lost their sense of citizenship during this period of transition and for many service users their social position, prospects, and health outcomes are unimproved since the era of the asylum.

We believe that the power to resist and instigate change has been weakened and that there remains a place for public protest independent of services and would-be gurus. Campbell, P The role of users of psychiatric services in service development - influence not power. Psychiatric Bulletin. Mental Health Practice, 11 4 Working with homeless people entails working on the margins of society. Workers are frequently exposed directly and vicariously to the many traumas, indignities and injustices that characterises the lives of homeless people. Workers are confronted by marginalised lives and also frequently the sudden deaths of service users.

The marginalised positions of both homeless person and homeless sector worker is a complicating factor that colours the experience and challenges the capacity of the worker to make sense of the death, work through the trauma and frame the death and ongoing work in a positive way. This presentation derived from a grounded theory study of homeless sector workers and sudden death will explore how workers resolve the problem of framing death and moving on drawing particularly on the narratives of homeless sector workers themselves.

Objectives Research involving people who may be suicidal is fraught with ethical problems. There are few guidelines to assist researchers or review boards clarify and negotiate issues that may be specific to suicide research. This survey aim to describe these problems and how they might be resolved. Design : Experienced researchers identified via published research and ethics committee members were invited to complete an on-line survey addressing the risks, benefits and ethical problems associated with suicide research.

Methods : Twenty eight researchers and ethics committee members participated in the survey from Australia, New Zealand, Canada the United Kingdom and Ireland. Findings were aggregated into themes using an inductive form or content analysis. Results : A range of ethical problems were anticipated and addressed by researchers. Concerns of ethics committees centred on accessing the population, potential harm to participants or the researcher, researcher competency, maintaining confidentiality, providing support to participants and responding sensitively to the needs of family.

Conclusions : Ethical research with people who may be suicidal requires both procedures to protect participants, and consideration of ethics as an ongoing negotiated process. Suicide is a pressing social concern but engaging with suicidal people in research is fraught with ethical difficulties. This paper presents the findings of a web based survey of experienced suicide researchers and human ethics committee members from Ireland, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand on the ethical problems and ethical practice involved with working with people who may be suicidal.

Ethical research involving suicidal people requires both procedures to protect participants, and consideration of ethics as an ongoing negotiated process. The findings provide salient pointers for researchers and practitioners to consider in their work with suicidal persons. The user movement is commonly understood to have been formed during the s. At the heart of the movement was human rights and the deinstitutionalisation of the so called 'mentally ill'. Like all social movements the mental health user movement has experienced various transformations over time. User involvement is now a relatively common occurrence in the drawing up of policy and legislative documents, in the planning and development of mental health services and research projects.

These advances are primarily attributable to the user movement. Indeed, we now have service users asked to present at major mental health conferences, carrying out their own research projects and running their own services with some individuals reaching the dizzy heights of becoming authors of academic papers and books. The audience will be encouraged to reflect on the user movement, its legacy and transformative processes. For example, has user involvement become a means by which services control the social agenda originally set out by the user movement? Has a hierarchy of service users developed mirroring that which exists within mental health services?

Consequently, has the social status and levels of freedom for those deemed mentally ill improved since the s? The presenters will address these controversial issues. Debate and dialogue with the audience to critically examine this will follow. Suicide is a pressing public policy issue and social concern but it also reflects an intensely personal struggle.

This paper presents a review of the very limited literature examining the suicidal experience from the point of view of the suicidal person. It considers how people live with being suicidal. People who may be considered 'psychotic', 'disordered' or 'deluded' are often excluded from formal psychotherapy. Nevertheless, the everyday interactions between people can be helpful and therapeutic. This workshop focuses on introducing and practicing a basic model of empathic communication at the supportive end of the psychotherapeutic continuum that might be employed when people express bizarre or contrary ideas.

This paper provides an overview of findings and musings on a project to increase the quality of family and carer participation in adult mental health services. Research findings that particularly highlight the views of service users and family members will be highlighted. The discourses that compete to shape mental health service provision may broadly be divided into those that emphasise individual difference, diversity and mystery and those that emphasis sameness or homogeneity and predictability. Practices such as case-mix determination, standardised outcome measurement, and the standardisation of treatment are vigorously promoted within mental health services see: Australian Mental Health Outcomes and Classification Network, The arguments for these are seductive.

They promise certainty, meet managerial demands for more and better information, cement the role of health professional as expert and facilitate a certain kind of evidenced based practice. This paper raises questions about the compatibility of these practices and their underlying assumptions with the promotion of personal recovery, the notion of people and groups as complex, therapy as a process of discovery, and the stance of the health professional as one of humility. Discourse is created and perpetuated by those who have the power and means of communication Foucalt, This paper argues that logic, reason and 'evidence' alone will not derail current trends towards managed and homogenised care. Real change may only happen when consumers, carers and compassionate health professionals present a loud enough counter-case and are heard and respected.

Foucalt, M The birth of the clinic: An archaeology of medical perception. ORG - Home. The National Standards for Mental Health Services Commonwealth of Australia, mandate the participation of consumers and carers in the development and evaluation of mental health services, and as partners in the process of care planning and evaluation. Yet recent reports continue to highlight that family members and carer's feel excluded from mental health care Mental Health Council of Australia, In late Townsville Institute of Mental Health introduced practice standards TIMHS, , or minimum expectations regarding communication and information sharing with family and carers as policy in adult in-patient and community services.

This paper describes the promotion and evaluation of these standards and observations from consumers and carers about what is important to them in relation to participation. The adoption of practice standards appears to be a simple and cost effective means of enhancing mental health care. Commonwealth of Australia PDF, Townsville. Introduction This research project examines communication processes between clinical supervisors and supervisees who engage in an online supervisory relationship via the Internet. An international team of nine researchers, comprising professionals and academics from a wide range of disciplines, collaborated in developing a long term research study to: explore the experience of computer mediated clinical supervision; establish the extent to which online clinical supervision matches the expectations of supervisees and meet professional standards; describe differences between computer mediated clinical supervision and face-to-face clinical supervision; and evaluate how communication practices are adapted using different computer applications in the process of online clinical supervision.

Method This presentation will illustrate: the development of the diverse research team; development of an ethical research proposal via collaboration through listserv communication; development of the project website www. A five-phase design encompasses an initial phase of data collection to enable the team to match participants, followed by four follow-up phases at three-month intervals of web based questionnaire completion about their experience of online supervision for analysis.

Results of phase one of the research project and subsequent matching of participants and their expectations about the online supervisory relationship are presented as the result of the methodological techniques demonstrated. Before the end of Queensland Health will require ''outcome measures" to be undertaken for all patients of mental health services. This paper provides a critical reflection on the use of outcome measurements and selected aspects of Queensland Health's implementation. Using the metaphor of religion this paper will challenge some of the articles of faith that outcome measurement is founded upon and pose questions about the compatibility of these with other systems of belief which inform the recovery movement and which are fundamental to humanistic nursing care.

Clinical supervision has a long pedigree in the mental health professions as a face-to-face relationship purported to assist in the maintenance of standards and to enhance practice through educative and restorative functions. The growth of the Internet and computer mediated communication technologies challenges the traditional notion that the context of clinical supervision need be face-to-face or undertaken by a supervisor intimately acquainted with the local practice setting. Over the last decade some psychiatric nurses and other health professionals have claimed that they have developed sustaining professional and collegial relationships akin to supervision or have actually entered into formal supervisory relationships using Internet technologies.

In an international research team comprised of a diverse range of disciplines collaborated in developing a long term research study to: explore the experience of computer mediated clinical supervision; establish the extent to which online clinical supervision matches the expectations of supervisees and meets professional standards; describe differences between computer mediated clinical supervision and face-to-face clinical supervision; and evaluate how communication practices are adapted using different computer applications in the process of online clinical supervision. This paper presents snapshots of the journey of this research team, and something of the reality and possibilities of on-line supervision.

An exploration of some of the on-line resources available to the psychiatric nursing community. A primary function of nursing has been described as the facilitation of the conditions necessary for growth and development. Some of these conditions are basic and common to all and helping agencies are charged with providing or assisting people to obtain them. This paper explores some of these conditions and how nursing is sometimes impeded from realising a truly helping function in North Queensland. Through the story of Phillip it will be illustrated how care that has the potential to be growth enhancing and proactive can become merely palliative and reactive in the face of rigid and inflexible bureaucratic processes.

Our collective aims should be to assist people to thrive, not merely survive. The internet and its impact on nursing: Research and reflection on the benefits and pitfalls of computer-mediated communication. The explosive growth of e-mail and other forms of Internet-based and computer-mediated communication CMC promises to have a dramatic impact on human relations, with implications for nurses and nursing as for any other section of society. If nursing is to benefit from changing communication modes, the experiences of nurses who have already adopted and adapted to using the evolving technologies must be explored. The responses, when compared with the earlier findings, reveal that a growing body of nurses have become more sophisticated in their use of CMC, and are producing resources on the Internet.

More importantly, CMC is rapidly becoming an essential and integral part of the routine of many nurses and is resulting in changes in practice. Launching the sub-branch web site. This paper uses Slade's explanatory model as a framework for explaining hallucinations and considering helping interventions, which may be used alongside pharmacological interventions. Principles and practical ideas for how nurses might assist people to cope with and make sense of the experience are explored. This paper examines the ethical implications of nurses as tools, that is nurses carrying out the delegated or instrumental work of others. It is proposed that nursings' instrumental relationship with medicine, has in some instances led to an ethos, or moral climate which legitimises excluding nurses and patients from moral decision making and silences the moral voice of nursing.

Nursings' involvement with compulsory psychiatric treatment is examined as a particularly problematic area of practice in terms of the legal requirement to carry out "doctor's orders" and exclusion from dialogue about the terms of treatment. Treating nurses as mere tools is challenged as unethical and the facilitation of a new health care ethos founded on values of collaboration, relationship and inclusion is proposed as a moral imperative for ethical health care. This presentation explores issues surrounding being a mental health professional with a mental illness. Whilst consumer groups are establishing a niche within psychiatric and mental health services, many professionals may rightly claim to "have a foot in both camps".

This presentation aims to lay bare some of the attitudes, stereotypes and contradictions in belief which shape the reality of health professionals with mental illness. The presenter's revisit the notion of the 'wounded healer' and suggest that the degree to which health professionals 'take care' of themselves and own their own vulnerability collectively and individually has a direct bearing on the kind of care that they can provide to others. The presenters have made similar presentations in the past and share some of the questions, which have arisen in their own practice and in response to previous presentations about the position of, and response to mental health professionals who have experienced mental illness.

Hearing voices is an experience common to many people in psychiatric care but meaningful help in coping with the experience is less common. This paper presents a model of coping behaviour specific to hearing voices. It proposes that coping with voices includes hallucinatory control, emotion and problem focused coping and is a function of context, the features of voices, and beliefs about voices. Results from a pilot study exploring coping with voices are presented. The instruments were found to be reliable and easy to complete.

Results are discussed in relation to the theoretical framework and suggest that people engage in a wide range of purposeful coping behaviour in response to voices that do not fit comfortably into arbitrary coping categories. Consideration of 'coping with' rather than 'amelioration' of voices ought to be a key focus of nursing, and the model of coping presented may be useful in making sense of, and facilitating coping behaviour. A review of helping interventions for nursing the person who hears voices. An examination of data from a study on computer mediated communication by psychiatric and mental health nurses. It is our belief, that the experience of emotional or psychological distress, or mental illness can lead to a much greater positive outcome than merely recovering what has been lost… It can lead to discovery… discovering something about what it means to be person.

Personal discovery we believe is an important component of recovery and being as well as being an effective helper. Recently nurses around the country were called to contribute to a ministerial task force examining barriers which prevent registered nurses contributing to the realisation of a more responsive, innovative, effective, efficient, accessible and collaborative health service. This paper suggests that one need look no further than New Zealand mental health legislation and the medical hegemony over the compulsory assessment and treatment process to uncover barriers to nursing actualising it's potential.

One cannot begin to make sense of coping experience without an understanding of the person's social world and how this informs and interacts with perceptions, and the attribution of personal meaning to the experience. Because it is possible to completely ameliorate voices does not mean that we should. More than ever we need to extend our understanding of the voice hearing experience and bridge social and clinical conceptions. The internet consists of some ten million computers networked together. It provides a means of human communication which transcends boundaries of language, race and sex, as well as providing people with access to an unimaginable quantity of information.

This paper reports on a qualitative study undertaken to explore how psychiatric nurses experienced in the use of the internet currently use and benefit from it, how they have learned to communicate on the internet and how they see the internet affecting psychiatric nursing culture.
