Primary health care clinicians’ attitudes towards complex mental health conditions and associations with clinician treatment-management self-efficacy

This project is being completed by Katrina Chapman as a research project for the Bachelor of Psychological Science (Honours) at CQUniversity. The project will investigate the attitudes of clinicians in primary health care – specifically, GPs, psychologists and psychiatrists, towards complex mental health conditions – and observe the association with the clinician’s belief and confidence in their ability to treat and manage clients with these conditions.

Psychiatrists, psychologists, and GPs registered with AHPRA and currently practicing in Australia are invited to participate in an anonymous online survey which consists of questions regarding your profession, your attitude towards social situations, your personal and professional views on complex mental health conditions, and your experience with and confidence in treating and managing these conditions.

Completion of the survey will take around 15–20 minutes.

Participation in this project will not affect your employment, academic standing or association with the University.

All participants will have the opportunity to enter a draw to win one of three $100 David Jones gift card vouchers.
