Occupational Therapists (OTs) intending to seek registration with Medicare for 'Better Access' mental health item number utilisation need to be or become members of OT Australia (OTA). They need to use the Focussed Psychological Strategies (FPS) when they deliver services to patients (consumers). The training conducted by the College of Medical Hypnosis is all based upon CBT and the FPS and is approved by the GPMHSC on behalf of Medicare for medical practitioners to register to use an extra 7 Medicare mental health item numbers. The training is accompanied by a certificate which you can use to present to OTA, the AASW, the APS or the GPMHSC to support your application for Medicare registration.

OTs, psychologists, social workers and GPs are attending training which has been assessed for FPS content and can therefore be logged as FPS CPD attendance.
