The care programme approach: A descriptive study of its use among discharges from the Southsea acute psychiatric unit

  • J. S. Jamieson (a1)
Abstract

The CPA encourages good psychiatric practice in the continuing care in the community of people who suffer with serious mental illness. The tiered CPA has recently been proposed with a view to channel resources towards those patients who are most in need. This study assesses whether the CPA is used appropriately and effectively among patients discharged in an inner city sector where there is a high level of serious mental illness. The results suggest that it is feasible provided there is an adequately developed community mental health team.
