About the role



Integrated Services -HARP is a service that targets people with chronic disease, aged and/or complex needs who frequently present to hospital or are at imminent risk of hospitalisation and could benefit from coordinated care. HARP provides short term support and intervention to maintain a person’s optimal independence in enabling them to better manage their condition/s in the community and reduce avoidable hospital admissions.



The HARP Psychology Service aims to assist clients to adjust to and manage their chronic illnesses. All referrals to HARP Psychology will be triaged by the HARP psychologist in discussion with the referrer. If the referral is accepted a psychological assessment will be scheduled with patient consent in order to establish a diagnosis and make recommendations based on the identified needs. This can include identifying barriers to managing their chronic illness including mental health issues e.g. depression, anxiety, adjustment, grief/loss, psychosocial stressors or drug and alcohol issues with the overall goal of reducing the number of hospital presentations, or risk thereof.  The HARP Psychology Service may also include brief psychological intervention and therapy, consultation and liaison with other staff involved in the client’s care, liaison with the client’s doctors, and referral to other services as indicated.
