Mental Health Nursing is generally a core second year subject and may be taken by nurses, paramedics, occupational therapists and other health disciplines. The focus is not on the ‘general hospital', as many nurses and other health professionals in Australia will not necessarily be working in the hospital setting. It is important to consider the role of the ‘multidisciplinary team'.

✏Health Informatics Building a Healthcare Future Through Trusted Information Book Summary : A more trusted environment for the management and use of health information would undoubtedly help to consolidate and accelerate the use of health informatics solutions as change mechanisms to drive the establishment and adoption of new models of care, as well as new technology-oriented healthcare processes. This book presents 35 papers from the Australian National Health Informatics Conference (HIC 2012), held in Sydney, Australia, in July and August 2012. The theme of the conference is ‘Health Informatics - Building a Healthcare Future Through Trusted Information’, and emphasises the importance of assuring the integrity and security of health data and communications. The papers range from deeply theoretical to intensely practical, and address many elements of contemporary health informatics research endeavours, as well as peripheral, but related topics. Australian research, developments and implementations are at the forefront of e-health, and are the focus of much international attention. The Federal Government has invested in the building of a National Broadband Network, lead implementation sites, telehealth delivery and personally controlled electronic health records (PCEHR), launched 30 days before the conference. This book will be of interest to clinicians, researchers, industry innovators and all those who share the desire to deliver better healthcare to all.
