General-practice Users Perceived-need Inventory

Screening and assessment instrumentation for Primary Care

The research group now working in Southern Synergy conducted the  development,    supported by a grant from beyondblue the National  Depression initiative of a    novel instrument for screening and  assessment of mental health problems in primary    care (the  General-practice Users Perceived-need Inventory or GUPI). This built     on the development of the Perceived Need for Care Questionnaire used in  the    Australian National Survey of Mental Health and Wellbeing and  adapted the structure    from that survey instrument towards the primary  care setting.
