CPNs have multiple roles and are often the backbone of CMHTOP. They often see patients in their own homes and care homes, in outpatient (including memory) clinics, and in general practice surgeries. They assess new patients and follow up existing ones, provide support for their caregivers/families, deliver psychological interventions like cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), administer depot antipsychotic medications, monitor treatment adherence and side effects, and coordinate all other aspects of patient care. CPNs are also the communication bridge between the patient and the CMHTOP. CPNs train staff in primary care and care homes in the identification, assessment, and management of mental health problems in older people.

Hi, I am afraid I disagree with a previous post that “the pandemic will worsen hidden youth’s situation.” You see, now everyone is asked to stay at home, and hidden youth no longer face pressure from their parents or society to go out, which might reduce their stress level.

Following the previous post, we have used the snowball sampling method and asked the interviewees to introduce their “hidden” peers who would like to accept the interview. But will it have an issue of generalizability?

The outbreak of coronavirus pandemic and social distancing measures might make “hidden youth” even more isolated from society. Our center’s cyber outreaching team is considering online engaging those youth and look for participants who would like to accept interviews. May I ask which sampling method is the most appropriate?

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
