I researched and found the above article about Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners working in collaboration with primary care facilities.  I am interested in how this works out; typically, these specialties are separate.  The article was very informative about the pros and cons of PMHNP working in primary care facilities with family practice nurse practitioners and family health physicians (Birch et al., 2021).  Due to where many of these primary care facilities are located in lower-income communities, mental health concerns and mental health diagnoses often go untreated due to patients’ inability to seek care.  When a patient does seek help, time limits are a problem with a family practice nurse practitioner, so integrating a psychiatric nurse practitioner satisfies the patient’s needs (Blackmore et al., 2018).   I was not aware of how high the number of patients who go to primary care for behavioral health problems. The article states up to 70% of people seek behavioral health concerns (Birch et al., 2021).  

I used Walden University’s online library to research and find articles I was interested in (Databases A-Z: Nursing, n.d.).   I searched for articles, and then I typed in the subject I was interested in and selected peer-review articles.  Some sites charge per journal article.  However, Walden University library has granted its students access to a large assortment of peer review articles in any subject we may want to read. I would recommend that my colleagues use Walden’s online library for convenience and no charge for journal articles.

STUART, A. M. et al. Psychological treatment for methamphetamine use and associated psychiatric symptom outcomes: A systematic review. Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment, [s. l.], v. 109, p. 61–79, 2020. DOI 10.1016/j.jsat.2019.09.005. Disponível em: https://search-ebscohost-com.ezp.waldenulibrary.org/login.aspx?direct=true&db=psyh&AN=2019-79759-012&site=eds-live&scope=site. Acesso em: 6 abr. 2021. 

 

I decided to search on the topic of psychiatric symptoms related to methamphetamine drug use. I have worked in mental health for nearly a year and a half and I am still amazed at the amount of meth abuse that comes along with new admissions to our unit. I used (psychiatric treatment and drug abuse) as key words for my topic and came up with more than 2,600 related articles through the Thoreau database at Walden University. What I was looking for was information with regards to meth abuse and the relationship with mental health psychotic symptoms. Is there an underlying, undiagnosed existing mental health issues or is the abuse of meth the cause of psychotic symptoms in newly diagnosed and treated psychiatric patients?  Although a number of reviews of psychological treatment for methamphetamine use have been conducted, none have examined the effects of psychological interventions for methamphetamine use and psychiatric symptoms (Stuart,A.M. et al, 2020). My question is what is the greater need for treatment, the drug abuse or psychotic symptoms? I have had discussion with colleagues with regards to treatment for those individuals as drug abuse requires greater time and special treatment for each individual, while the psychotic symptoms can be treated more acutely. A prolonged period of METH abuse ranging from 1 year to more than 20 years in the persistent-type patients suggests that long-term abuse period significantly contributes to development of a refractory psychotic state (Akiyama, 2006). Even though I haven’t come up with an answer, I will continue to search this topic, as it is very much prevalent in my every day job.  

Every article identified was not related specifically to the topic of meth abuse, but they did have connections to the key words of psychiatric treatment and drug abuse. Thoreau is a tool that searches many of the Library databases. It is not able to search every database, but it does search enough of our resources to be useful tool for quick, simple searches (Walden University, n.d.). While I was able to find an article, some topics might require advanced searches as the Thoreau database doesn’t search every database. While it was helpful and simple to use, frustration could set in when your topic is not coming up due to some limited database research. If difficulty arises, there are other resources within the library homepage such as other database searches as well as the ability to ask a librarian. Going forward, I will continue to utilize this particular database as well as the other services made available.
