Abstract

This article presents a review of five years of referrals to a clinical psychology service in stroke rehabilitation and evaluates the efficacy of a matched care approach for triaging referrals. Analysis showed that where referrals were triaged to one of three levels, those allocated to the highest level of priority were seen sooner and for more sessions. Where pre and post assessment across psychological intervention was undertaken, average improvement in mood showed medium to large effect sizes. The utility of a matched care model as well as service improvements based on this review are discussed.
