Metabolic Screening and Assessment Introduction

Evidence states that people who experience serious mental illness (SMI) are more likely to experience preventable, chronic health conditions than those who do not.

One of the major causes amongst those who experience SMI are the metabolic side effects of psychotropic medications.

Nurses who are working with people with SMI  are in a unique position to be able to screen, provide advice and early intervention to minimise harm and promote high achievable levels of health for them.

The Nursing process APIE (Assessment planning, intervention and evaluation) is an essential part of any Nursing intervention.
