"Incorporating Evidence Based e-Mental Health Resources into Primary Care"
Over the last two decades the internet has provided a platform for the development of many effective mental health interventions. These programs have proved useful tools in primary care, especially in rural and remote areas where sufferers cannot always access the specialised face-to-face care they need.
Unfortunately the uptake of e-Mental Health has not been rapid. Part of the problem seems to be that GPs have not been given the information they need about the programs in order to use them effectively, or to understand how to incorporate them into existing work practices.
Evidence supporting the use of a selection of Australian e-Mental Health resources will be discussed by Dr Jan Orman, GP Services Consultant from Black Dog Institute. Various programs available in Australia will be demonstrated using videos, slides and internet links.
