People seeking mental health support may present to clinicians with a range of interrelated factors that can make it challenging to determine the most appropriate level of stepped care. The IAR is an initiative of the Australian Department of Health that provides a tool to assist general practitioners and clinicians to recommend the most appropriate level of care for a person seeking mental health support.

Brisbane South PHN is delivering training on the effective use of the IAR Decision Support Tool and how it can be implemented into practice.

AUDIENCE: General Practitioners and clinicians managing people seeking mental health support

NOTE: GP’S WILL RECEIVE A $300 REMUNERATION PAYMENT* AND 4 RACGP CPD POINTS FOR TRAINING COMPLETION.
