Mental health outcomes information collection protocol (ICP) - HoNOS family (version 3.0)

This provides a guide to staff involved with the collection of mental health outcome information to be reported under PRIMHD mental health information programme.

This document outlines the outcome information required to be collected (including the first outcome tool, the HoNOS suite of measures), when it is required to be collected, and includes a frequently asked questions section covering common questions about the collection process.

Note that this document outlines only the minimum set of data required to be collected for national outcomes reporting. DHBs may collect more information as part of this process. Technical information/documentation about the full PRIMHD data set, along with PRIMHD reporting requirements is available from the Ministry of Health website.

This document may be downloaded in PDF format for printing but is uncontrolled unless viewed electronically from its original location.
