GP Psychological Assessment Guide

General Practitioners play a key role in facilitating work participation for their patients. Comcare’s new one-page resource is designed to assist GPs to assess their patient’s functional capacity for work. Enabling patients to participate in good work while they recover results in better health and wellbeing outcomes.

Evidence-based assessment should consider both physical and psychological functions and focus on what the person can do, not what they can’t do. This guide will help GPs to perform psychological assessments of capacity for work and make recommendations for reasonable adjustments to support performance of work duties.
