- Recommendation ID
People with complex needs other than dementia:- What is the effect of specific interventions to support people with complex needs because of multiple diagnoses and resistance to treatment during transition between inpatient mental health settings and community or care home settings? (This includes people with physical or learning disabilities, people with personality disorder, people with complex psychosis, people with long-term severe mental illness and people on the autistic spectrum.)
- Any explanatory notes
Why this is important:- As the population ages and people live longer, the number of people with severe and complex mental and physical care needs is increasing. They may need ongoing intensive support fromrehabilitation and other mental health services to live in the community after discharge. Although they are a relatively small group, expenditure on care for people in this group accounts for around 25% of the total mental health budget.
Studies are needed to evaluate different approaches and interventions to support people with complex needs during transition. Qualitative studies exploring views and experiences of people with complex needs and their families are also needed. These should include the views of staff from the receiving care home.
