Abstract

With a review of UK nurse education expected following the Shape of Caring Review (2015), this paper will contribute to the debate around the need for adult nurses to be able to respond to a broad array of presenting issues in their patients, specifically awareness of mental health issues. The focus will be on trauma experienced as a result of interaction with the healthcare system in the form of unintentional neglect, misdiagnoses, surgical errors and mismanagement of care. For the purposes of this paper trauma can be defined as any severe and debilitating psychological distress that occurs as a result of incidents in a healthcare setting. This could include trauma symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as defined by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorder (DSM 5) (American Psychiatric Association, 2013), but might include undiagnosed distress presenting as symptoms of anxiety or depression.
