In response to the NIMC and Acute Psychiatric Services Survey Report the Commission has made available a National Adult Clozapine Titration Chart, with support materials for use by psychiatric acute services. The National Adult Clozapine Titration Chart is based on the clozapine titration chart developed by Queensland Health and implemented across public hospitals in that state. The national chart has been modified to make it amenable to national use. Please note that the national chart has not been piloted or otherwise tested by the Commission. However the Commission makes the chart available because of identified need and at the request of health services and jurisdictions.
The Commission also engaged the NSW Therapeutic Advisory Group to revise the Indicators for Quality Use of Medicines in Australian Hospitals 2007. The revised indicators include five new indicators for acute mental health services.
