Mental Health Phase of Care


Welcome to the eLearning module Mental Health Phase of Care.

The Mental Health Phase of Care is a new clinical outcome measure that we need to record for our consumers. This outcome measure, along with others, forms part of the Australian Mental Health Care Classification (AMHCC).

This module will explain the purpose of the Phase of Care and how you will use this measure with your consumers and multidisciplinary team.

A certificate is issued on completion.
