The IMPRovE Partnership Trial

Implementing work-related Mental health guidelines in general PRacticE (IMPRovE)

The National Health and Medical Research Council has awarded the Department of General Practice, Monash University, with a partnership project grant to implement a Clinical guideline for the diagnosis and management of work-related mental health conditions in general practice. The IMPRovE Trial commenced operations in April 2019.

GPs have a significant role in enhancing recovery and return to work outcomes for patients with work-related mental health conditions. However, current practice is hampered by clinical uncertainties and system difficulties that GPs encounter in practice.

Our key objectives with IMPRovE are to increase the delivery of evidence-based care for patients with work-related mental health conditions in Australian general practice, to assess the cost-effectiveness of our intervention and plan for national scale up.
