Speaker: Professor Ben Hannigan
Mental health systems are complex. Care is provided by multiple organisations and occupational groups. Ideas and practices are open to contest. This complexity creates difficulties for people using, and working in, services and helps explain the importance of care coordination. In this seminar Professor Ben Hannigan briefly trace the history of formalised approaches to mental health care coordination before using data from the COCAPP study (Simpson et al, 2016), subjected to a new analysis (Hannigan et al, 2018), to distinguish how it is imagined care coordination is done from how it is actually done in practice.
