The other week a paper was submitted to a journal on the application of Hodges' model in forensic nursing.
I am really pleased to have worked on this as a co-author and to find the health career model proving its relevance and value in such a challenging care environment.
Basically we divided the work and the paper as follows:
- Introduction to Hodges' model (new material);
- Explanation of why the model is relevant in forensic mental health services;
- Applying key principles of theory and practice of forensic care to each care domain;
- Discussion, recommendations and future directions.
