“The guideline, which is structured using a clinical reasoning pathway, includes 11 evidence-based recommendations and, where clear evidence is not available, 19 consensus-based recommendations. The guideline provides tools to assist assessment and diagnosis, and includes recommendations on the work-relatedness of mental health conditions, patient management including decisions about return to work, comorbid or secondary mental health conditions, conveying a diagnosis to a patient and communication with others in the workplace. It promotes collaboration, communication, cultural sensitivity and appropriate care, highlighting the important role that can be played by family physicians, and the members of their teams, in each person’s personal recovery and return to work.”
