The Office of the Chief Psychiatrist has developed Writable MHA 2014 Forms for reporting to the Chief Psychiatrist. These forms are easy to use and streamline the reporting process for mental health staff.
The Forms will open as a PDF document, and information can be typed directly onto the Form. If the MHA requires that a copy of the Form be sent to another agency (such as the Chief Psychiatrist), the writeable Form has a ‘submit’ function that will send the Form directly to the intended recipient upon completion. The Forms can also be printed for filing into the medical records.
The Chief Psychiatrist recommends making use of these Forms wherever possible. It not only simplifies the process for mental health service staff, but it reduces the data entry requirements within the OCP.
We have developed a short a short instructional video that provides guidance on how to use the Forms, and this is now available on the Chief Psychiatrist’s website here – instructional video.
If you have any queries about the Writable Forms, please feel free to contact the OCP on 9222 4462.
