Community Psychiatric Nurse Band 6 - Cambridgeshire

As a community mental health nurse, you’ll need to show empathy along with excellent observational skills.

You’ll provide support to people living with various mental health conditions. This can involve helping the patient to recover from their illness or to come to terms with it to lead a positive life.

You can specialize in working with certain groups, such as children or older people, or in a specific area such as eating disorders. Work is often carried out in multidisciplinary teams, liaising with psychiatrists, psychologists, occupational therapists, GPs, social workers and other health professionals.

 Responsibilities

  • Ensure the correct administration of medication, including injections, and monitor the results of treatment.
  • Prepare and maintain patient records and produce care plans and risk assessments.
  • Work with patients’ families and carers, to help to educate them and the patient about their mental health problems.
  • Respond to distressed patients in a non-threatening manner and attempt to understand the source of their discomfort.
  • Assess and talk to patients about their problems and discuss the best way to plan and deliver their care.
  • Build relationships with patients to encourage trust, while listening to and interpreting their needs and concerns.
  • Help patients manage their emotions using different techniques.
