Care Programme Approach
Medicines can be an important part of a person's recovery. Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust believes people - both patients and staff - need to have information which allows them to be confident that the mental health medication used by the Trust is safe, effective, offers the best outcomes and value for money.

It has four main elements are:
• systematic arrangements for assessing the health and social needs of people accepted into specialist mental health services
• the formation of a care plan which identifies the health and social care required from a variety of providers
• the appointment of a key worker (care co-ordinator) to keep in close touch with the service user and to monitor and co-ordinate care
• Regular review and, where necessary, agreed changes to the care plan.
The Care Programme Approach (CPA) is applicable to all adults of working age in contact with mental health service.
