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.
This document provides information for clinicians to enable them to assess phases accurately when applying the new concept of mental health phase of care.
This document describes the Australian Mental Health Care Classification and the process IHPA has undertaken to develop the new classification.
This guide is intended to provide assistance when assigning care types, especially for those patients that may potentially have care that applies to more than one care type.
