Mental Health Phase of Care Clinical Refinement Project Final Report
Date published: 12 May 2020
Following the completion of the 2016 Inter-Rater Reliability (IRR) study to test the consistency of clinician application of the mental health phase of care, the poor to fair reliability outcome led to the commencement of the refinement project. The project aims to identify the reason for the poor IRR and to improve reliability. This report outlines the clinical findings and recommendations to refine the mental health phase of care. This report was approved by the Pricing Authority in November 2019.
