This application links you to the Mental Health themed pathways and guidance issued and updated regularly by NICE
Who is it for? Clinicians need to consult and be familiar with NICE in order to properly inform their clinical decision making. In a similar way, patients or carers involved with chronic illnesses will benefit from keeping an eye on how things should be done.
What if your practitioner isn't following NICE? That's probably fine so long as (1) they KNOW they are outside of NICE guidelines and (2) they have recorded - and hopefully discussed it widely.
This app links to web pages so will not work offline, but it will always reflect the content of the NICE website. This is important if you are to be sure of reading the latest update. Remember when you download stuff, it can go out of date! Read the latest versions only. NICE stopped providing written copies for this reason in October 2011
This app only links to Adult Mental Health aspects of NICE, and the author has no connections with the NICE organisation (except trying to pay close attention to their guidance professionally)
A PROBABLE DIAGNOSIS can be established with this software within 2 minutes, using a deductive logic system.
- Disease Description. This provides a detailed and comprehensive description of the disease. This information is presented in a clear and simple format that allows understanding of the disease process and the resulting signs, symptoms and possible complications.
- Signs and Symptoms. A complete description of all the signs and symptoms associated with this particular disease.
- Other Conditions to Consider. This provides a list of other conditions which may have similar symptoms, and should be considered in a differential diagnosis. Complete information on these diseases is provided if they are included in the database.
- Investigations. A detailed list of recommended investigations which may be used to validate or refute the diagnosis. This includes laboratory tests, radiography, imaging, surgery and all other relevant investigations
- Treatment. A comprehensive and detailed description of current recommended treatments, including dosages
- Patient Management. Things the patient can do to assist in treatment where applicable.
This information is intended to fully inform the patient about all aspects of their PROBABLE DIAGNOSIS and other conditions with similar symptoms so that they will be able to better understand and actively participate in their medical care. Rapid Diagnosis Mental is not a substitute for a diagnosis made by a qualified medical practitioner, based on a thorough examination and appropriate investigations. All diagnosis made with this software should be confirmed by a qualified medical practitioner. The primary objective of this software is to encourage an active interest in health related problems, their diagnosis and treatment, and to empower patients by providing them with accurate, up to date knowledge, so that they may understand and participate in their health care.
Your Rapid Diagnosis Mental was developed by one of Australia's leading private hospital companies with over 40 years experience in the provision of health care.

Te Pou has created the HoNOS tool to make it easier for mental health clinicians to use the HoNOS suite of outcome measures.
• Collect your HoNOS, HoNOSCA, HoNOS65+, HoNOS-LD and HoNOS-secure ratings.
• Work at a time and place that suits you, on your desktop computer, smartphone or tablet.
• Understand your caseload with the dashboard snapshot statistics, invaluable for meetings with your team or manager – input your entire caseload to get the full benefit of the dashboard features such as number of cases, severity, ethnicity, gender, legal status, etc.
• Compare an individual’s outcome ratings over time.
• Share individual results with service users – a great way to have meaningful conversations about outcomes with the people you support.
• See when HoNOS collections are due or overdue at a glance.
• No active Wi-Fi or data connection required at the time of collection. Your data will be stored locally on your device until you choose to sync it.
Te Pou’s HoNOS app has been developed by Wild Bamboo, trusted experts in developing software that collects and stores sensitive health information – you can rest assured that your information is protected and secure.
Please note – this phase of the tool streamlines your data collection and caseload management. You cannot export data from this app into your organisation’s client information systems. This is something we hope to address for New Zealand clinicians in future versions of the app.
HoNOS – the Health of the Nation Outcome Scale – is a clinician rated tool developed by the United Kingdom Royal College of Psychiatrists Research Unit to measure the health and social functioning of people experiencing severe mental illness. This is an outcome tool mandated for use by specialist mental health services in New Zealand by the Ministry of Health.
There are five measures in the HoNOS suite of outcome measures:
• HoNOS: for adult service users (aged 18 – 65 years)
• HoNOSCA: for children and adolescent service users (aged 3 – 18 years)
• HoNOS65+: amended version of the HoNOS for adult service users (aged 65 and over)
• HoNOS-LD: for adult service users who have a dual diagnosis, such as mental illness and an intellectual disability
• HoNOS-secure: for adult service users who are being supported by forensic services.
