Advanced Course in Mental Health and Psychiatric Nursing in the Inpatient Setting

June 26, 2023 @ 8:00 am - June 30, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

The UP College of Nursing and UP-Philippine General Hospital is inviting you to join our Advanced Course in Mental Health and Psychiatric Nursing in the Inpatient Setting!

This course is designed to equip BSN-prepared nurses with post-basic competencies in providing evidence-based, safe, and quality nursing care for patients with mental health and psychiatric problems in the acute inpatient setting. This 45-hours intensive and immersive advanced hybrid course will be delivered through 5 weeks of asynchronous module-guided sessions with once-a-week 2-hour synchronous discussion sessions, and 1 week of an in-person workshop (including PGH-Behavioral Medicine Ward tour and observation).

There will be 5 modules of lectures and 1 module of workshops. The 5 modules are delivered per week with 3-4 hours of asynchronous lectures, teaching-learning activities, and 2 hours of weekly synchronous discussion. This will allow the participants to work at their own pace and at the same time truly immerse in the different concepts and topics. The topics include the therapeutic use of self, therapeutic communication, psychiatric assessment, and interview, interventions for different maladaptive behaviors, discharge planning, and community rehabilitation. For the last module, an in-person workshop will be conducted which will focus on skills training in psychiatric interview and the management of maladaptive behaviors.

The intended participants will include all registered nurses with at least 1 year of clinical experience who want to specialize in Mental Health and Psychiatric Nursing, Nurses who are currently practicing in a psychiatric facility or institution, and Nursing Faculty who teach Psychiatric Nursing.

The registration fee is 7,000 pesos. Participants who successfully finished the course will receive a Completion Certificate with corresponding CPD points. You may scan the QR code in the poster or by clicking this link https://forms.gle/FYXs78cL9P9wgfva7
