Individuals with serious mental illness, prisoners, and ex-offenders needing skilled nursing facility (SNF)-level care are difficult to place in traditional SNFs. SNFs accepting these historically marginalized individuals may offer them a more appropriate level of care. We compared health services use (emergency room (ER) visits, acute hospitalizations), total number of antipsychotic medications prescribed, and quality-of-life indicators (depressive symptoms, cognition, resident behaviors), before and after admission, among 86 individuals admitted to a Connecticut SNF for persons difficult to place...

Barbara J Limandri
Acute and chronic insomnia are common and difficult clinical problems that contribute to and are consequences of other mental and physical health problems. It is tempting to treat insomnia with medications for rapid relief; however, these medications have significant side effects that add health burden and may cause tolerance and dependency. First-line treatment for insomnia is cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I); however, this is less frequently prescribed than benzodiazepine and non-benzodiazepine sedative hypnotic agents...

Barbara J Limandri
In the United States, benzodiazepine medication use is the secondary epidemic to opioid drug use and carries serious consequences as well, even though its use is enabled by well-intended clinicians. Benzodiazepine drugs are intended for short-term use, not to exceed 2 to 4 weeks; yet, it is common for clients to be taking benzodiazepine medications for up to 10 years. In addition to dependence or addiction, adverse effects include depression, emotional blunting, ataxia, aggression, irritability, nervousness, and cognitive impairment...

John Read, Claire Cartwright, Kerry Gibson
More than 10% of adults are prescribed antidepressants annually in some countries. Recent increases in prescribing can be explained more by repeat prescriptions than new patients. This raises the question of whether antidepressants are addictive. A total of 1829 New Zealanders who had been prescribed antidepressants completed an online survey; 44% had been taking antidepressants for more than 3 years and were still taking them. Withdrawal effects when stopping medication were reported by 55%, and addiction by 27%...

INTRODUCTION: Relatively few psychiatrists live and work in rural South Australia. The rural GP is an essential component of support for people with mental health problems. However, considerable GP maldistribution between rural and metropolitan Australia still exists. Thus, accessing health services, including medication, becomes challenging for rural communities. Extending mental health nurse prescribing could be a strategy to build additional capacity to complement the GPs and psychiatrists who practice in rural South Australia...

BACKGROUND: Medically unexplained physical symptoms are an important health problem in primary care, with a spectrum from mild to chronic. The burden of chronic medically unexplained physical symptoms is substantial for patients, health care professionals, and society. Therefore, early identification of patients with moderate medically unexplained physical symptoms is needed in order to prevent chronicity. The preventive screening of medically unexplained physical symptoms (PRESUME) screening method was developed using data from the electronic medical record of the patients' general practitioner and demonstrated its prognostic accuracy to identify patients with moderate medically unexplained physical symptoms...

BACKGROUND: Mental health and mental illness are often overlooked in the management of patients in our health services. Depression is a common mental disorder worldwide. Recognising and managing mental illnesses such as depression by primary health care providers (PHCPs) is crucial. This study describes the knowledge, attitudes and practices (KAP) of PHCPs regarding depression in Fako Division. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted among PHCPs (general practitioners, nurses, pharmacy attendants and social workers) in public-owned health facilities in the four health districts in Fako Division...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to investigate developments in antidepressant prescriptions by Dutch general practitioners, alongside the national introduction of mental health nurses. Antidepressant prescriptions are very common in general practice, but are often not in line with recommendations. The recent introduction of mental health nurses may have decreased antidepressant prescriptions, as general practitioners (GPs) have greater potential to offer psychological treatment as a first choice option instead of medication...

The end of the year can trigger the recognition that aging adults are no longer as independent as they once were. Psychiatric nurses and other mental health professionals may see an increase in older adults being referred for treatment. As the most appropriate psychosocial/psychotherapeutic and psychopharmacological treatments are identified for older adults, there are some unique challenges inherent in coordinating the care of this population. It is especially important for prescribing psychiatric advanced practice nurses to update, review, and cross-reference older patients' lists of medications at every appointment...

Background Mental and physical health problems are common in people with substance misuse problems and medications are often required in their management. Given the extent of prescribing for service users who attend specialist addiction services, it is important to consider how prescribers in this setting assess the appropriateness of service users' prescribed medications. Objective To explore prescribers' views and experiences of assessing the appropriateness of medications prescribed for service users coming in for treatment as well as the differences between prescribers...

"Safety first" has always been a nursing priority-just as medication education has been an essential nursing function. Approximately 79 million individuals of all ages, birth-to-death, were prescribed psychotropic medications in 2013. Nurses of all disciplines and who work in all practice settings must be aware of the potential safety concerns related to medications patients may be taking. Black Box Warnings (BBWs) are the strictest labeling requirements that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration can mandate...

BACKGROUND: South Africa (SA) has been facing serious challenges in providing human resources for the delivery of essential mental health (MH) services. The majority of its prescribing MH specialists, psychiatrists, practise in private, urban and peri-urban areas. The findings of a situation analysis audit of psychiatrist human resources in the public rural primary healthcare (PRPHC) sector are presented in this paper. METHOD: This audit was based on both primary and secondary data...

REVIEW
Donna Sabella
: Antipsychotic medications are primarily used to manage various symptoms of psychosis. In recent years, more adults-and teenagers-are taking at least one type of psychotropic medication, the majority of which are prescribed by primary care and family physicians. Because nurses are now caring for people of varying ages, and with varying diagnoses, who are taking these types of medications, they need to develop a working knowledge of the agents available and know when it's appropriate to prescribe them for mental health disorders as well as for disorders unrelated to mental health...

BACKGROUND: Since January 1, 2012, nurse practitioners (NP) working in mental health care are allowed to prescribe psychotropic medication. So far, there has been very little research on the results of this decision that now let NPS share with doctors prescribing psychotropic drugs. AIM: To provide insight into how patients and psychiatrists experience the prescribing behaviours of NPS and how NPS themselves regard their extended role. METHOD: We performed an explorative study in which we used the data given in prescriptions written by NPS, questionnaires exploring patients' experiences and semi-structured interviews with psychiatrists and NPS...

Laura G Leahy
Genetic testing in psychiatric practice may be a beneficial adjunct to the nursing toolbox of considerations used to improve patient outcomes. Since 2004, the psychiatric community has used genotyping to personalize medication options for their patients. Although not a definitive or exact science, pharmacogenetic testing for psychopharmacological treatment options offers nurses and their patients insights into potential treatments that will reduce the current trial-and-error prescribing practices and more quickly improve patients' quality of life...

Laura G Leahy
Off-label prescribing and polypharmacy are commonplace in today's health care environment. Patients are treated with multiple medications obtained through multiple providers, and all too frequently, there is no collaboration amongst professionals. Nurses can address these issues by educating themselves and their patients regarding medication indications and uses, side effects, risks, and benefits. By exploring a patient's medication reconciliation, including over-the-counter agents, and identifying the U.S...
