Abstract

Public health nurses are the largest manpower component in community-based psychiatric care in Taiwan. However, controversies related to primary responsibility for such have erupted and must be addressed in order to ensure patients receive the most appropriate care and healthcare professionals are adequately trained and supported. This article used the STEP (social-technological-economicalpolitical assessment) method to assess the macro-level contextual changes that have affected healthcare centers and public health nurses providing community psychiatric care as well as their role function and development. This study recommends several policy changes based on findings.
