Service Coordination Strategy
MHCC is revisiting mental health sector reform directions for individualised and person-centered coordinated and integrated service delivery and National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) 'Coordination of Supports' support items introduced in August 2015.
In 2011-2013 MHCC progressed a Service Coordination Strategy which made a significant contribution to understanding the skills required for effective care/service coordination from the perspective of people affected by mental health conditions and those that provide services and supports to them.
This resulted in the development of the following resources:
- Literature Review and Discussion Paper - Mental health service coordination and the community managed mental health sector in the context of national health and hospital reform (July 2011)
- Skills identification - Service Coordination Workforce Competencies: An investigation into service user and provider perspectives (October 2012)
- Learning and Development - Navigating Support Facilitation
This Service Coordination Strategy was undertaken in recognition of the importance of strengthening coordinated and integrated service delivery skills across the community services and health workforce. It predated, and subsequently supported implementation of, the Partners in Recovery (PIR) initiative.
