Abstract: The aim of this paper is to provide a brief description of clinical practice guidelines (CPG), describe
Their benefits to consumers and clinicians, provide an overview of the Royal Aus¬tralian and New Zealand
College of Psychiatrists’ (RANZCP) Clinical Practice Guidelines project and to discuss the role of consumer versions of CPGs.
The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) is undertaking a number of projects to develop and promote best practice in mental health. One of these projects is the Development and Implementation of Clinical Practice Guidelines, funded by the National Mental Health Strategy and the N.Z. Health Funding Authority. The pro¬ject has two primary objectives. The first is to develop a series of CPGs for specialist men¬tal health clinicians and their consumers. CPGs will be written for a number of common mental disorders: schizophrenia, depression, bipolar disorder, panic disorder and agora¬phobia, anorexia nervosa, and deliberate self-harm. The second project objective is to de¬velop a plan for the implementation and evaluation of the CPGs.
