Nurses attitudes towards self harm

Tim Carter, Asam Latif, Patrick Callaghan, Joseph C Manning
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To explore the potential predictors of children's nurses' attitudes, knowledge and confidence towards caring for children and young people admitted to hospital with self-harm. BACKGROUND: Admissions to paediatric inpatient settings for individuals who have self-harmed are growing. Limited previous research suggests nurses have mixed attitudes towards people who have self-harmed, and potentially lack the confidence to provide effective care. There is a specific paucity of research in this area for children's nurses...

This article describes a participatory approach towards using co-production with CYP and rCN to develop a digital educational programme to improve nurses' knowledge, attitudes and confidence in caring for CYP with self-harm injuries. A priority-setting workshop with rCNs was used to establish consensus of information needs...

WHAT IS KNOWN ON THE SUBJECT?: Self-harm is a relatively common occurrence in adolescents; however, there remains a lack of understanding about the motivations behind adolescent self-harm, and this poor understanding can have a negative impact on how mental health professionals respond to young people who self-harm. WHAT DOES THIS PAPER ADD TO EXISTING KNOWLEDGE?: This paper identifies the reasons for self-harm in a community sample of young people and finds that the functions of self-harm differ for different people and that there may be multiple reasons for self-harm...

Self-harm occurs frequently in psychiatric hospitals and other mental health and outpatient settings. Many patients at the Ayr Clinic are at risk of self-harm and often access the local accident and emergency service for minor injury care. The medical and nursing response to people who repeatedly self-harm, given increasing pressures and dwindling A&E resources, can often be one of impatience, frustration and hostility. A nurse-led pathway was developed by the Ayr Clinic and NHS Ayrshire and Arran to fast-track the assessment and treatment of such injuries and improve health professionals' attitudes towards these patients...

It includes articles that concern both general and mental health nurses who work in various healthcare settings (e.g. acute inpatients wards, community mental health, emergency departments and medical admission units). The literature shows that negative attitudes towards self-harm are common among nurses...

BACKGROUND: Differing perspectives of self-harm may result in a struggle between patients and treatment staff. As a consequence, both sides have difficulty communicating effectively about the underlying problems and feelings surrounding self-harm. Between 2009 and 2011, a programme was developed and implemented to train mental health care staff (nurses, social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, and occupational therapists) in how to communicate effectively with and care for patients who self-harm...
