Impact Story


  • The Mental Health Practice Standards for nurses in Australian General Practice support the delivery of stepped mental health care by nurses working in general practice and other primary care settings. The Standards provide an important framework for general practice nurses to self-assess their professional development needs to ensure that consumer mental health needs are met. Further, the Standards provide an evidenced base framework enabling the Australian College of Mental Health Nurses to develop CPD eLearning modules for primary care nurses. Each module empowers these nurses to develop knowledge, skills and confidence about mental health and incorporate these into their day-to-day practice.<br /><p>The program includes 6 x 1 hour modules, which general practice nurses can complete in single or multiple sessions. Modules include:</p><p><strong>Module 1:</strong> About mental health</p><p><strong>Module 2:</strong> About mental illness and ways to engage</p><p><strong>Module 3:</strong> Therapeutic approaches for everyday practice</p><p><strong>Module 4:</strong> Mental health assessment, risk assessment and (care) planning <em><br /></em></p><p><strong>Module 5:</strong> Referral, documentation and care coordination<strong><br /></strong></p><p><strong>Module 6: </strong>Knowledge to Practice (This new module uses practice-based examples to explore and expand on strategies described in <strong>Modules 1 to 5</strong>)</p>
