Abstract

Objective To access the views and understanding of clinical psychologist working within CMHT's in Glasgow of Care Programming. To gauge their current level of involvement in Care Programming and to discover the range of services that they are currently providing to this system of care. Design A postal questionnaire survey. Setting All adult Community Mental Health Teams in Glasgow, Scotland. Subjects All qualified clinical psychologists identified to be working within CMHT's in Glasgow providing a service for adults (16-65 years). Results Eleven clinical psychologists working within CMHT's completed the questionnaire. All had some knowledge of Care Programming. To date there has been minimal involvement of clinical psychology with this approach. Only 5 of the 11 who responded had been involved with Care Programming clients. The reasons for this lack of involvement are not clear. The sample considered that there were valuable contributions that clinical psychologists could make to Care Programming and felt this approach to be of benefit to client, carer and care provider. Of those involved, 3 considered Care Programming to be an improved approach to the care of clients with severe and long-term mental health problems. The majority predicted that their involvement would increase in the future. 2 Conclusions Although aware of Care Programming and working in the environment where this system operates, clinical psychologists have made little contribution to this service. Future involvement will undoubtedly increase. Training and information would be beneficial.
