    Abstract

    This paper describes how South West
    Yorkshire Mental Health Trust and the University
    of Huddersfield, worked in partnership to
    develop pre- and post-registration competency
    in order to adopt a systems approach to
    implementing the physical well-being
    recommendations contained within From Values
    to Action: The Chief Nursing Officer’s Review of
    Mental Health Nursing (DH, 2006a).
    Research has shown that there are good
    practice examples of physical health
    interventions by qualified health professionals.
    However, establishing the baseline skills and
    competencies needed to undertake such
    activities for both pre- and post-registration
    nursing is necessary to ensure effective
    interventions are available for the service user.
    Obesity will be used as a practical example of
    how mental health nurses can improve the
    interventions offered to service users.
