About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Victoria is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Victoria Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication or psychotropics. Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans and MRIs.

Some psychiatric practitioners in Victoria specialize in age groups (so check for Victoria child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Victoria). Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists or geropsychiatrists.

Other related specialties include psychopharmacology (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics and neuroimaging.

Psychiatric nurses in Victoria, or mental health nurses, specialize in nursing care for people with mental illness or mental distress. Victoria Psychiatric nurses receive training in psychological therapies (such as CBT), building therapeutic alliance with clients and dealing with challenging behavior. Importantly, they are trained to administer psychiatric medication (or 'psychiatric meds') and, in very limited ways, to prescribe meds.

Nurses monitor for side effects and responses to medical treatments and offer information on meds so that clients can make informed choices about their use.
