Psychiatric mental health nurses frequently care for patients who engage in non-suicidal self-injurious (NSSI) behaviors. However, input from nursing stakeholders, survey data, and patient quality outcomes have demonstrated a professional nursing knowledge, skills, and practice gap in effectively and collaboratively caring for these patients at the hospital. Non-suicidal self-injury constitutes a notable public health and psychiatric hospital problem (Selby et al., 2014).

This educational activity is particularly needed given NSSI’s relevance to our specific patient population. With increasing complexity in the hospital’s patient populations, it is critical that psychiatric mental health nurses understand and apply evidence-based practices for preventing and managing NSSI behaviors. 

1.0 Continuing nursing education credits will be provided.
