Involving Consumers/Family in Treatment Decisions
There is significant interest in increased involvement of consumers of public sector mental health services and their family members in directing the course of care. This session seeks innovations in this field and evidence that such innovations affect the effectiveness, accessibility, or acceptability of care. It also discusses metholodological issues of evaluating the impact of consumer/family involvement on treatment.
