Consent for Support

• I consent for Country & Outback Health workers to provide support to me, which may include a range of assessments, interventions and support services.
• I understand that my contact with Country & Outback Health is voluntary, and consent is valid for 12 months while I am a current client and that I can change or withdraw my consent at any time.
• I understand Country & Outback Health does not provide emergency services or after-hours care.
• I understand my details will remain confidential unless there is a serious risk of harm, or a crime has been committed, in which case my information including session notes could be requested or subpoenaed as part of legal processes.
• I understand that all information collected by Country & Outback Health will be treated confidentially and stored securely.

Consent for information sharing

• I consent to my personal information being provided by Country SA PHN to the Department of Health and Aged Care, and in the case of mental health services to state and territory health departments/agencies, to be used for statistical and evaluation purposes designed to improve health services in Australia.
• I understand that this will include details about me such as date of birth and gender but will not include my name, address or Medicare number.
• I understand this includes the use of personal information to generate a unique key, which can be used to link my de-identified data to other de-identified data to facilitate research.
• I understand that my personal information will not be provided to the Department of Health and Aged Care or state and territory health departments/agencies if I do not give my consent.
• I also understand that my consent is not required for the Department of Health and Aged Care and state and territory health departments/agencies to include data about my use of services, combined with information about other clients, in summary, reports about the activities funded by Country SA PHN because these do not require personal information.
