Nursing Case Management
In the past, it was very hard in the past for patients having mental illness to be well cared and treated, (Halcomb, Patterson, and Davidson, 2006, p. These kinds of illnesses have effects on individuals and economics of the country. This is because for them to be maintained huge sums of money is spent, (Andrews, Henderson, and Hall, 2001, p. This sums spent can be used for development purposes either personally or at a country level. Apart from this, according to the report which was given in the year, 2007 by ABS, it showed that many for people having years ranging from sixteen to eighty-six, at most five are found with mental illness, (Lloyd, and King, 2004, p. Furthermore, it also affects people in their working areas, when on vacations and when in social gatherings, (Drew, Adams, and Walker, 2010, p.
Despite depending on the time the disorder has affected someone, the early ages indicate that it will have implications which can last for a long period of time. To solve these problems among the Australian people, NMHP proposed plans to overcome the problems, (Drew, Adams, and Walker, 2010, p. Even though the body of NMHP did not sufficiently solve the different types of disorders, NAP aided by COAG was formed to give assistance so as to avoid early discharge of the patients, (Lawn, Smith, and Hunter, 2008, p. It proposed to the government to give some financial aid, (Gulliver, Griffiths, and Christensen, 2010, p. Furthermore, the clinical model emphasis on the relationship between the consumer and the environment, and believe that the environment has the greater impact on the person’s well-being, and to working with the person-in-situation, (Halcomb, Patterson, and Davidson, 2006, p.
The strengths model of mental health case management is a recovery-oriented approach and based on the strengths perspective has been advocated by the society in the recent years and applied among to the consumers. In the society, people are greater concentrate on the goals about promoting recovery and stand on the principle of respect for the lived experiences of each consumer and emphasize the strengths and self-determination of the consumers, rather than using pathology, (Gulliver, Griffiths, and Christensen, 2010, p. The SMCM can be defined as more concerned with achievement rather than with solving problems, more focus with thriving more than just surviving, and with triumph instead of just trauma, (Hogan, and Pennell, 2016), therefore in SMCM is more promoting people to have goals, dreams, and aspirations.
In addition, studies have examined that the strengths model case management (SMCM) have a good result in gaining the better outcome for the consumers and was effective in improving consumers’ physical and mental health than before. , 2008, p. viii). As a result of this, the Australian medical department of mental illness has failed in delivering quality services to their patients. Even though there are bodies such NMHP and NAP, they have failed to offer credible Medicare to the people diagnosed with such disorders, (Fforde et al. , 2013, p. The above has been criticized because the overall expenditure on the money spent is huge on the patients with mental problems. In addition, the satisfaction of the patients who go to seek for help is low and their needs are not fully met as they expect, (Fogarty et al.
, 2008, p. viii). Also, the prevalence of the people affected by the mental disorders is extremely high and it has remained stable for quite some time. Ethical Challenges including how Duty of Care, Reporting harm to Self and how others Override Confidentiality Ethic means the accepted code of conducts that governs one when in a duty. No any organization without challenges hindering day to day activities. Medical health centers in Australia have faced a lot of ethical challenges in their way of caring and treating patients with mental problems, (Walker, and Bryant, 2013, p. To start with, for a better service in mental health centers, the relation of both the consumers that is the patients and the case managers is great significance. If the relationship worsens it means the services rendered to the patients having different disorders will be poor, (Walker, and Bryant, 2013, p.
It is not only for the consumers but also to the case of case managers the process is the same, (Halcomb, Patterson, and Davidson, 2006, p. Even though their relationship with the patients is assumed to be good, the problem of caring and treating the patients is the same as the illness is the same regardless of its stage. The reason behind this is because the mental disorder patients have the mistrust about the treatment and how the services are rendered to them. Due to this, it becomes very difficult for the professionals, nurses to care and treat patients appropriately. Finally, the recovery of patients has been a major blow to mental health centers in Australia. On the other hand, the relationship between consumers, patients together with the case managers should be minimized through collaborating and forming groups aimed at handling the problems of the patients efficiently.
Finally, in the criticism area, the medical health centers should work together and request for aids if things do not go on their way. References Andrews, G. , Henderson, S. and Hall, W. and Jorm, A.
