Focus groups on supported decision making at the ANZAPPL Conference, November 2015

The annual conference of the Australian and New Zealand Association of Psychiatry, Psychology and Law (ANZAPPL) was held in Canberra on 25-28 November 2015. The (very broad!) title for the conference was Systems, Clients and Patients, Psychiatry, Psychology and Law. During the conference, SDM project team members Associate Professor Renata Kokanovic from Monash, and Professor Hermann, Professor McSherry and Dr Brophy from the University of Melbourne conducted a series of focus groups on models for supported decision making in the mental health context. Analysis of the focus group data will be used to implement the SDM project’s objectives, including development of supported decision-making initiatives for clinical and related services.
