Behavioral health unit-specific concerns were also identified. Findings indicated that nurses and PCTs were eager to find approaches to deliver DSSE.Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: Implementation of a web-based DSSE program for inpatients needs adaptation to overcome challenges at the patient, care team, and process levels.
