What types of challenges have you encountered in working with patients with mental health issues? How do you feel these challenges would be different in a community-based setting? Would it be easier or more difficult and why?
Discuss scenarios in which community health nurses might encounter ethical issues related to mental health. Examples could include hospice patients wanting to end their lives or asking nurses to give them too much medication; school nurses having students confide things to them that indicate serious mental health issues; nurses working in homeless shelters whose patients are abusing drugs and potentially exposing others to a communicable disease, etc.
