Current expressions of interest

The Sax Institute is commissioning an Evidence Check review on Models of care and practice for the inpatient management of highly acute mental illness and acute severe behavioural disturbance.  Expressions of interest close on 18 June 2020.

The review will address the following questions:

  1. What hospital-based models of care or practices have been shown to be the most effective to reduce high acuity and acute severe behavioural disturbance in mental health inpatients?
  2. What have been the barriers and enablers to implement effective models of care to reduce high acuity and behavioural disturbance in mental health inpatients?

A draft (complete) report is required by 8 August 2020 and the final report by 15 September 2020.
