Chronic disease and mental health care plan user pathways

Medicare asked the College to help ‘map’ the way patients move through parts of the health system. The two maps were developed showing user pathways of people involved in developing Chronic Disease and Mental Health Care Plans. They focus on the activities, relationships and touch points related to 'red tape' aspects of care plans, not clinical or health outcomes. The College was represented by Dr James Finn. You can now read and download the maps: Chronic Disease and Mental Health Care Plan User Pathways.
