IMPRove trial: implementing mental health guidelines in GP clinics

  18 February 2021  The University of Sydney

Do you see patients with mental health conditions that have arisen as a result of work?

Are you a GP who would like to improve the care you provide to patients with work-related mental health conditions? Monash University would like to hear from you. We are conducting an NHMRC-funded partnership trial called “Implementing work-related Mental health guidelines in general PRactiCE” (IMPRovE).

GPs who complete the data collection requirements, complete academic detailing and attend a webinar will receive 40 RACGP CPD points or 8 ACRRM points once the trial is complete. Your practice will receive $1500.

For the study, if you are randomised to receive the intervention, we will provide you with access to an online community of practice, where you can access peer support networks, educational materials and specialised clinical guidelines. You’ll gain key skills and knowledge to assist you in managing patients with work-related mental health issues.

We have started recruiting GPs and their patients for the study and are looking for GPs and their patients in New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory or Victoria. To be eligible to join the trial we would like your commitment to assist us in recruiting between 14 and 24 patients who have confirmed or suspected work-related mental health conditions over the next 12 months.
