The Office of the Chief Psychiatrist is starting new online forums to support best practice and problem-solving between mental health services in a rising COVID-19 environment.
The sessions are open to all staff from clinical mental health services and will provide an opportunity to collaborate, learn and support each other through challenges working in COVID-19 community transmission. A similar model has been successful in New South Wales.
The purpose of the sessions is to share learning, ideas and practice-based evidence in adapting to changing demands in a rising COVID-19 environment. Responding through collaboration and sharing-up-to date state, national and local guidelines and strategies will support sustaining high quality mental health care through community transmission.
The first session will be next week:
Inpatient Care in COVID-19
Mimidi Park will be sharing their experience so far
Wednesday 23 March 11:00 – 11:30
The format will be an informal 30 minute online sharing and discussion session. A summary will be made available on the Chief Psychiatrist’s website (Community of Practice) following the session.
The session will be held on MS Teams. If you would like to attend, please email email@example.com, and a link to attend will be forwarded to you.
