ABSTRACT SUBMISSION NOW CLOSED

ABOUT THE THEME

There is a lot of talk about integration and mental health… but what does this mean to mental health nurses in clinical practice, in research, in education, policy and in management?
What does it mean to you?

 

Concurrent speakers and poster presenters  will be provided with the opportunity to share with us their experience of mental health and mental health nursing - considering the topic of integration,
but also a range of interesting relevant sub-themes.

Impacts on Practice

We can consider integration from a range of perspectives - from the idea of ‘integrated care’ for example, the integration of physical and mental health care, of integrated services (e.g. integrating mental health and AOD services), or of broader integration, including health, housing and education - which implies policy integration and shared responsibility for improving the well being of the population.
 
When it’s done well, we know integration improves accessibility and affordability, reduces fragmentation, improves efficiency and prevents duplication of services; it requires creativity
and innovation - qualities that we know mental health nurses possess.
 
This conference will explore the concept of integration - what is it, where we are up to,
what the barriers and enablers are, and what the vision should be. We invite speakers to challenge us with their ideas around how we move towards a more integrated system across all areas of practice.
