Position: PhD student

Current research: My PhD research aims (1) to develop a conceptual evidence-base of nurses’ perceptions on their role in and contributions to the care for individuals experiencing suicidal ideation in mental health settings, (2) to gather quantitative data about the perceptions of patients experiencing suicidal ideation regarding their contact and communication with nurses in mental health settings, and (3) to integrate nurses’ and patients’ perceptions in order to gain a fuller understanding of the nurses’ (potential) role in and contributions to the care for individuals experiencing suicidal ideation in mental health settings.
