Abstract

Nursing directors of 899 geographically diverse skilled nursing facilities reported substantial limitations in the competence of staff at all levels in managing behaviorally disturbed patients and a broad-based need for improvements in skills. The authors propose an interdisciplinary team training model as an appropriate design for improving competence and promoting collaborative care.
