Gray, Richard, Barnes, Pamela, Bee, Penny, Brooker, Charlie, Curran, Joe, Lovell, Karina, Keeley, Philip, Playle, John, Rance, Jo and Robson, Deborah (2005) Mental health nursing: literature review synthesis and recommendations. Appendix III of Rights, Relationships and Recovery: The Report of the National Review of Mental Health Nursing in Scotland. Documentation. Scottish Executive.

This review is divided into four parts:

1. Service users' and carers' views of mental health nursing.
2. The efficacy of interventions delivered by mental health nurses.
3. The clinical effectiveness of these interventions when delivered by mental health nurses.
4. The experience of being a mental health nurse in specific relation to satisfaction and stress.

The review will locate, review and synthesise existing literature (particularly focusing on systematic reviews), identify the current gaps in this literature and provide recommendations for practice, education, service provision and research in relation to mental health nursing. Each of the four parts of the review will be addressed using a different review methodology.
