Implementing work-related mental health guidelines in General PRacticE (IMPRovE) – Research project
The project aims to improve the response and behaviour of general practitioners (GP) towards patients with work-related mental health conditions.
- signed a multi-institute agreement
- committed funding over four years and in-kind support.
We are also attending the Intervention Advisory Group and Steering Group meetings.
We expect recruitment of general medical practitioners (GPs) to begin in February 2020, with Comcare-targeted GPs in Victoria and NSW invited to participate in the intervention.
Clinical guidelines were developed to assist GPs with diagnosing and managing work-related mental health conditions.
The recommendations of the clinical guidelines were approved by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) in late 2018 and launched in March 2019.
Comcare is a project partner on Monash University’s IMPRovE project.
IMPRovE is short for Implementing work-related Mental health guidelines in general PRacticE (IMPRovE) project.
This project aims to help implement the Clinical Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Work-Related Mental Health Conditions in General Practice.
