Nurses' perceptions and practices that promote recovery from schizophrenia in Thailand's mental health system

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • Recovery concept tends to be important in the mainstream of mental health services for individuals with schizophrenia. Under mental health system shifting from medical model to recovery approach, nurses play important roles to promote clientÃÂÃÂÃÂÿs recovery from schizophrenia. However, there is a suggestion that nurses have to review their knowledge attitude and skills to manage care under recovery orientation. A descriptive qualitative study was conducted to nurseÃÂÃÂÃÂÿs perception about the concept of recovery from schizophrenia and nursing practices to promote recovery process. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with twenty-four nurses, who delivered care for clients with schizophrenia in three settings: psychiatric ward of general hospitals, inpatient psychiatric ward of tertiary psychiatric hospital, and community setting. There was a use of thematic analysis for data analysis. Five main themes were emerged from interview data, including meaning of recovery from schizophrenia, signs of recovery from schizophrenia, factor promoting recovery from schizophrenia, barriers against recovery from schizophrenia, and nursing practices that promote recovery from schizophrenia. ClientÃÂÃÂÃÂÿs quality of life or wellness should be placed as the goal of nursing process in mental health nursing.
