A range of new primary mental health services were commissioned by Murray PHN in early 2018 to help GPs support under-serviced and vulnerable populations in our region.
Our major focus for HealthPathways has been completing pathways in our priority areas and for more prevalent conditions. With changes to our preferred providers and a new model of care (stepped care), almost 40 mental health and alcohol and other drugs pathways have now been completed.
Dr Christie Rodda, former Murray PHN Clinical Editor and GP at The Beechworth Surgery (pictured) said at the time of release, that the new mental health pages were requested by general practice, providing clinical point-of-care information for the assessment, management and referral of patients.
"Clinicians can find acute, primary health, early intervention and preventative information and offer pathways for stepped care approaches such as; telehealth, community support, specialist care and self-management," Dr Rodda said.
Registered health professionals can access the direct pathway pages below. If you live in our region but haven't yet registered, register here for free.
