1 GPV is a QIC accredited organisation GP Mental Health Training Peter Gartside – GPV Primary Mental Health Care Liaison

2 History GP MH training requirements start with Better Outcomes 2001 ‘Level 1’ accreditation - to claim Service Incentive Payments for MH assessment, care planning and review ‘Level 2’ accreditation - to provide Focussed Psychological Strategies

3 History 2006 – introduction of Better Access with new MBS items for GP MH Care planning No further requirement for ‘level 1’ training Better Access training - poor take-up – not a requirement, probably too late

4 Forthcoming requirements Federal budget Mental Health Skills Training (=‘level 1’) - requirement to claim MBS item for GP MH Care Plan at the full rate Requirement starts from Jan 2010 Focussed Psychological Strategies skills training (=‘level 2’) continues for provision of FPS

5 Issues Nationally, c 19,500 GPs claimed a MH Care Plan Jun- Dec ’08 $30 difference in MBS rate for trained/un-trained GPs Some online options for MHST: gplearning, primed, and new Young Minds module Very few options for FPS or FPS CPD NB divisions have ‘number of GPs delivering FPS’ as a performance indicator No dedicated funding for divisions for GP MH Training

6 Issues continued How does a GP check her/his accreditation? Awaiting clarification of the rules re: accreditation period for ‘level 1’ This will determine demand, and supply Divisions may have ALMs they could ‘tweak’ to get accredited GPMHSC standards for accreditation of ALMs available – include consumer and carer involvement

7 headspace Youth mental health initiative – should involve a GP and Allied Health Professionals on site 7 Vic divisions involved, 4 as lead agency All 7 divisions are fundholders for the service delivery component (‘YMHI’) Some challenges with large consortia Ongoing uncertainty over YMHI funding headspace training in e.g. screening and early intervention for MH and/or drug/alcohol problems

8 ‘Can Do’ training Managing mental health and substance misuse co morbidity in general practice Divisions had access to funding – now finished Limited uptake in Vic in 2008 but… …Very well received where it has been run Multi-disciplinary ‘networking’ approach Face to face 6-hour modules still available = 40 ALM points Clinical education online module available – gives FPS CPD, but not MHST 6 Vic divisions have co morbidity grants – GPV keen to support divisions to build on ‘Can Do’
