This expression of interest is now closed.

Consumer completed measures can help facilitate a partnership between consumers and mental health clinicians at the point of care and clarify treatment and care goals.

Sometimes referred to as patient reported outcome measures or patient reported experience measures, these measures are completed by a consumer when receiving clinical treatment and care.

Safer Care Victoria’s Mental Health Clinical Network is looking for clinicians and consumers to join an expert working group and improve the way consumer measures are used in Victoria’s clinical mental health services.

Why consumer measures?

Currently there is variation in how consumer completed measures are used within Victoria’s clinical mental health services.

There is evidence that this practice has a strong connection to delivering care that is person-centred, effective and inclusive of consumers’ needs at the point of care.

Our goal is to improve how consumer completed measures are used to facilitate a partnership between the consumer and mental health workforce at the point of care, help clarify treatment and care goals and monitor progress.
