Study hypothesis

This project aims to determine whether short-term intensive community case management provided to "heavy users" of psychiatric services when not in crisis is beneficial and cost-effective. The patient group to be studied will be identified from an audit of users of acute psychiatric beds at Central Middlesex Hospital and other providers; previously it was found that 10% of patients utilised over 60% of total bed days. Case management will be provided by CIP, a fully operational mental health team working with clients with severe mental health problems.
