The Core Study



Chisholm & Ford (2004) Transforming Mental Health Care

Learning points:

• CRTs start planning for discharge at the point of intake to their service.

• Active in-reach to hospital settings helps to ensure that people can gain access to inpatient care via the CRT and can be discharged safely via the CRT.

• Visits have to be down to about one or two a week before it is felt reasonable to transfer care to a CMHT with higher case loads. (p.56)
