Australian Mental Health Outcomes and Classification Network

Clinical Prompts Project

During late 2007 – early 2008, AMHOCN undertook a project to establish the feasibility of linking clinical prompts to scores on the NOCC routine outcome measures; and the subsequent development of a library of clinical prompts to be potentially incorporated into the Web Decision Support Tool (wDST), or other information systems. Through a process of consultation with clinical reference groups, consumers and carers, eight sets of prompts linked to the NOCC measures in differing ways were developed, creating a matrix of prompts when combined. The primary focus of the prompts is to assist the supervision of junior mental health clinicians, but with recognition of a significant potential wider group of users including consumers and carers.
