The Canadian French edition of "Guides d'analyse par domaine d'intervention (GAD) en santé mentale d'interRAI: Complément aux instruments d'évaluation de la santé mentale en milieux communautaires et hospitaliers" is translated from the English "interRAI Mental Health Clinical Assessment Protocols (CAPs): For Use with Community and Hospital-based Mental Health Assessment Instruments." GAD are designed to help the assessor interpret systematically all the information recorded with the instruments' assessment forms. GAD are not intended to automate care planning; rather, they are decision-support tools to inform interactions between clinicians and persons with mental health needs.These new GAD can also be used with the prior generation of interRAI assessment instruments that are used in in-patient settings (RAI-MH). This set of twenty-one GAD can be used across the continuum of mental health services, and they replace the previous Mental Health Assessment Protocols (MHAPs) for the RAI-MH. The release of these mental health GAD follows the 2010 release (in English) of the CAPs for home care, community health, and long-term care facilities.This book includes introductory material followed by the GAD themselves, which are organized into the five broad areas of Safety, Social Life, Economic Issues, Autonomy, and Health Promotion. The appendix provides a summary of interRAI scales and algorithms referred to in the GAD. The Canadian French Edition has been customized for Canada, and the French language used in this publication is native to Canada.
