As the nature of problems of a community change over time, the nursing structure in a community should know about the needs and the nature of interventions necessary for the community and how do they change. One important aspect that can be avoided by nursing interventions and feedback is that the control of epidemics. In this paper the community considered is the one that needs the psychiatric nursing care and interventions. The care and interventions prevent the community members from being vulnerable to the psychiatric problems and to contain the inability of facing the challenges. However, it is important to consider the population density, for community nursing regarding psychiatric care as the psychiatric care needs more counseling when compared to physical illnesses (Kelly, Anne (Author), (2003).
As mentioned above, the community considered above is that needs psychiatric care and the survey on this community showed that 388 clients referred and about 80 people are not seen. Most of the clients are referred by general practitioners and clients to the community care centers. Hence, the nature of referrals indicates the need of nursing interventions for the people in the community that have psychiatric problems regarding social interactions. ...
One third of clients was living in private rented accommodations or no fixed home. In addition to that the half of the clients was unemployed or living in families that have no employed member. As a result the clients lacked the close emotional support offered by partners or family members. Three fifths of the clients were not receiving social service or psychiatric support and 38 percent of them have contacted for psychiatric services. The important request from the referrers was for assessment, advice, and counseling and for hospital admission. Hence, the important problem in the community considered is that to identify the psychiatric and social and health problems of clients and to provide the required intervention. The important problems identified are as follows:
1. Emotional and relationship problems
2. Neurotic problems and personality disorders (Sheppard, Michael (Author). (1991).
Plan for Monitoring That Decides on Intervention
According to the problems mentioned above timely counseling is necessary for the people in the above mentioned community. Hence, the community nurses should have a plan to visit the houses of the people in the community to know about their status and another itinerary to offer counseling to them. Hence, they can divide the plan into two halves. The first 10 days in every month can be used to know the problems and the status of the patients in the community and the next 20 days can be used to offer counseling to the patients suffering with the problems mentioned in the above chapter. As a result the patients can get timely counseling and the nurses can monitor the condition of the people in the community every month.
