Public Interest and Private Concern: The Role of Family Carers for People Suffering Mental Illness in the Twenty First Century
Australasian psychiatry : bulletin of Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists 2010 Apr ; 18(2): 163-6
OBJECTIVES: This paper looks to examine the emerging role of carers as essential components in the management of individuals affected by severe mental illness in the context of modern legal and health policy environments. CONCLUSIONS: Cultural and legal concepts of confidentiality within the doctor-patient relationship are complex. Increasingly, evidence is recognizing the essential role of carers in the quality management of individuals affected by severe mental illness and this emphasis is being further supported by innovative health policy and legislation. A public health definition for the role of carers may be a more appropriate way to consider their role in mental health management strategies.
