Talking to your patients about stepped care

Part of the Stepped Care Model is not to defer to a repeated approach for mental health care, such as psychological services, if there are other services available that would better suit the level of treatment.

Discussions with patients should cover what treatment they feel most comfortable with, and ensuring the patient has the information they need in relation to their treatment. Another important part of this discussion will be considering the place of the carer in the patient’s treatment and care. This is part of providing a ‘patient-centred’ service.
