Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS)

7C Collaborative Care Planning in Mental Health

The Collaborative Care Planning in Mental Health APSS blueprint outlines actionable steps healthcare organizations should take to successfully implement and sustain improvements in order to improve mental health outcomes sustainably and empower patients in taking control of their own mental health. Actionable steps to improve mental health outcomes and summaries of available evidence-based practice protocols are included:

  • Leadership checklist guide to determine whether current evidence-based guidelines are being followed in your organization
  • Performance improvement plan to follow if improvements are necessary
  • Clinical workflow from mental health screening to discharge including an inpatient mental health screening and action tool worksheet
  • Knowledge base on early detection and treatment of mental health deterioration
  • How to educate patients and family members about mental health deterioration prevention, recognition, and treatment
  • Mental Health resource guide
  • Guidance on how to measure outcomes

The blueprint is revised annually and is available free of charge on our website.

Hospitals who make a formal commitment to improve mental health outcomes and share their successes on the PSMF website have access to an additional level of consulting services.
