|Title:||Quality in Delivery of Mental Health Services||Contributor(s):||Ditton, Mary (author)||Publication Date:||2013||Open Access:||Yes||DOI:||10.5772/52295||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/16108||Abstract:||Quality in health care is an important contemporary topic because of rising consumer expectations of health care amidst constrained health care budgets. Historically mental health services have been the poor cousin of health care services generally, and acute health care services specifically. At this time when quality in health care is occupying more space in the health care literature, it is opportune to review what inroads have been made as far as quality in delivery of mental health services. This chapter will examine the movement towards quality management in health care and explore the divide between quality in general health care and quality in mental health care. After this, what is considered quality in delivery of mental health services is discussed and finally the challenges to quality in delivery of mental health services and methods to overcome these challenges are analysed.||Publication Type:||Book Chapter||Source of Publication:||Mental Disorders: Theoretical and Empirical Perspectives, p. 389-407||Publisher:||InTech Open||Place of Publication:||Rijeka, Croatia||ISBN:||9789535109198||Field of Research (FOR):||111714 Mental Health||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO):||920209 Mental Health Services||HERDC Category Description:||B1 Chapter in a Scholarly Book||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 156
