EDITORIAL
Michael Coffey, Ben Hannigan, Alan Simpson
Care planning and co-ordination are central to the delivery of comprehensive mental health care especially where individuals have complex health and social care needs. Although the terms are often used together they clearly imply different sets of processes, practices and ultimately experiences for individuals using and working in services. Care planning involves professionals (nurses, doctors, social workers and others) and the person needing care collaborating on goals, making shared written records and agreeing when to review progress...

Three years ago a member of our family disclosed that they were transgender. The umbrella term transgender refers to 'a significant minority of people whose gender expression or identity differs from societal expectations of their assigned sex at birth' (Bailey et al. 2014). We had not faced anything like this before and we quickly learnt that transgender issues provoke strong opinions and emotions. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

AIMS: This study investigated the actual and potential therapeutic role of the mental health nurse in psychiatric intensive care, where admission is due to violence or aggression. METHODS: In a mixed-methods concurrent triangulation design, clinician and patient activity was observed using a structured measurement tool, and qualitative interviews were conducted with four practitioners and six patients...

REVIEW
Nick Weaver, Michael Coffey, Jeanette Hewitt
INTRODUCTION: The increased complexity of community mental health services, and associated fragmentation of traditional dividing lines between services, has underscored the centrality of care continuity and coordination in modern mental healthcare. However, clarification of the key features of the care continuity concept has proved difficult and a consensus has not been reached. AIM/QUESTION: This review draws together and critically examines latest evidence concerning concepts, models and scales based on a multi-dimensional understanding of care continuity...

Today the use of digital technology available to inform, train and educate is ubiquitous, with everyday lives seemingly becoming immersed in technology (Howard-Jones 2011). Further, the recently published UK digital strategy provides the structure to enable free access to digital skills training for everyone in the UK (Department for Culture Media and Sport 2017). As part of the digital technology toolset, serious games hold the promise of relatively low risk experiential learning-curves that are engaging, fun and desirable...

However, few have attempted to address the role of coping styles in the relationship between PsyCap and psychological distress. WHAT DOES THIS PAPER ADD TO EXISTING KNOWLEDGE?: Our study found moderate levels of PsyCap among nurses in China. Among the subcategories of PsyCap, optimism and hope were most highly correlated with psychological distress...
