ACUTE HOME-BASED CONTACT

A contact made with a PATIENT for delivery of acute home-based care within a CONSULTANT EPISODE (ACUTE HOME-BASED). The contact, whether face to face or via telephone, will be made with the PATIENT at their normal place of residence.

Telephone contact should only be made where it is determined that the PATIENT is either approaching readiness for ending the period of care or is in a period of trial withdrawal from acute home-based care.

When the MENTAL HEALTH CARE TEAM MEMBER is also the allocated Care Programme Approach care coordinator for the PATIENT and the contact is face to face, then a FACE TO FACE CONTACT CPA CARE COORDINATOR should also be recorded.
