Abstract

Mental illness is common among patients admitted to
intensive care units (ICU), with a reported prevalence twice that of the
general population. Despite this, ICU nurses receive relatively little education
about caring for mentally ill patients, and stigma associated with
psychiatric diagnoses persists. At present, there is little evidence around
ICU nurses’ attitudes towards caring for patients with mental illness.
Objectives: To develop and pilot a questionnaire for the investigation of
ICU nurses knowledge, skills, and attitudes towards caring for patients
with mental illness.
