Mental health phase of care Inter-rater reliability (IRR) study - Final report

The Inter-rater reliability study final report was approved by the Pricing Authority in April 2017. The primary aims of the study were to test the inter-rater reliability of the mental health phase of care instrument, gather information about the clinicians' views of the mental health phase of care, identifying ways of increasing the clarity to reduce the ambiguity of the instrument, and to provide recommendations on how the instrument may be refined.

The results from the Inter-rater reliability study will contribute to the further refinement of the mental health phase of care and the Australian Mental Health Care Classification.
