Key Issues: The Care Programme Approach (CPA) provides the administrative framework for delivering effective interdisciplinary mental health care and consists of assessment, care plan design and delivery and monitoring/ review.Since 2008, the government has refocused the CPA on people who have complex mental health needs and are likely to require an interdisciplinary response from a range of workers and agencies.The CPA may be strengthened by the implementation of integrated care pathways that seek to improve either elements of the care delivery process or specific intervention strategies for a specified mental health problem.The Care Coordinator should be a professional member of the relevant mental health team who has the skills, knowledge and influence to facilitate effective interdisciplinary working.Interdisciplinary care planning will need to transcend the boundaries of Community Mental Health Teams and the hospital-community interface to provide continuous care for individuals.
