Best Practice Guideline for Transfer of Care for Mental Health Patients Moving to Western Australia from Other States and Territories

1 Jul 2021

The Best Practice Guideline for Transfer of Care for Mental Health Patients Moving to Western Australia from Other States and Territories is now available.

This non-mandatory best practice guideline is published by the Western Australian Department of Health. It is applicable to all Western Australian Health Service Providers that provide public mental health care including care that is provided in an Emergency Department. It informs the assessment, treatment planning and transfer of care for people who have had contact with, or been treated by, mental health services in other states and territories, both those who have permanently relocated to WA and those temporarily in the state.​

Those external to WA Health who cannot access the intranet link can request a copy of the document via @CSD, Mental Health Unit.
