The Program for Assertive Community Treatment is a multidisciplinary team which utilizes the strengths of individual team members in assigning tasks, with the philosophy that staff members, regardless of qualifications are somewhat interchangeable around team task fulfillment. The Psychiatric Nurse is responsible for conducting psychiatric assessments; assessing physical health needs; making appropriate referrals to community physicians; providing management and administration of medication in conjunction with the psychiatrist; providing a range of treatment, rehabilitation, and support services; and sharing shift management responsibility with other staff. It is an expectation that the PACT Team Psychiatric Nurse will provide most services in community-based settings.
