Mental Health Improvement Group

2-3 May 2018 - Sydney
Meeting Code HRT1806

The aim of this Group is to improve the provision of safe mental health services by sharing information on implementing innovative and effective practices. The group receives a series of annual reports that contain both inpatient and community data as well as some outcome measures. Separate reports are provided for adults, aged and CAMHS services. Members share information at an annual workshop.

The 2018 workshop will focus on the special topic of “Connecting beyond service boundaries for an integrated & consumer centric care system". Members will share information on integrated systems and working across service boundaries including engaging with all providers to support best consumer care. Members will share information about their practical experiences and innovations.
