CALHN older persons mental health service model of care consultation

An agreed model of care

The CALHN Mental Health Clinical Program is pleased to announce the release of the Older Persons Mental Health Service (OPMHS) Model of Care v1.0 (PDF 2MB) for consultation as part of phase one of the OPMHS Redesign. Consultation will commence on 1 August and conclude on 20 August 2021.

An expert working group has developed this model of care for OPMHS across CALHN based on considerable input from nursing, medical, allied health and administration staff, along with consumers and carers. This has involved multiple forums and workshops across in 2020/2021.
The aim is for CALHN to have a single model of care and service operational plan that encompasses contemporary practice, consistent and streamlined processes and pathways, and governance that delivers the best outcomes for older mental health consumers.
