About Just a Thought

Definition of a clinician

Just a Thought defines a clinician as a 'health practitioner', as defined in section (s 5) of the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003 (HPCA Act), which means a person who is, or is deemed to be, registered with an authority as a practitioner of a particular health profession.

The HPCA Act also sets parameters that not all health professionals are regulated under the HPCA Act. This acknowledges circumstances including some professions may have a (perceived) low-level risk of harm; may work with or under the supervision of a regulated profession or may be self-regulated.

A health profession or profession means the practice of a profession in respect of which an authority is appointed by or under this Act. Practise a profession or practise means to perform services that fall within the description of a health profession.

A health service means a service provided for the purpose of assessing, improving, protecting, or managing the physical or mental health of individuals or groups of individuals.

Your obligations and clinical responsibility 

In consideration of your agreement to these terms and conditions, the Just a Thought online therapy tool may be used (at your discretion) by patients under your supervision as a clinician (independently supervised patients). 

The Just a Thought online therapy tool is an unmonitored service and takes no clinical responsibility for patients prescribed to its courses. 

You must rely upon your own clinical judgement as to whether the Just a Thought courses will meet your patient/s' needs. 

By electing for your patient to be an independently supervised patient (a patient that has been prescribed a Just a Thought course by you, the referring clinician), and the patient is identified as being suitable for a course through Just a Thought's online screening processes, you: 

  • accept full clinical responsibility for the patient;
  • prescribe a Just a Thought course for the patient with a "prescription" code;
  • the patient must accept the relevant Just a Thought terms of use;
  • continue to hold clinical responsibility for the patient throughout the duration of their course/s; 
  • remain professionally responsible for the overall health and welfare of your patient;
  • undertake supervision of the patient during the course/s with due care and skill.

Just a Thought will inform you of your patient/s' progress, in particular their K10 scores, through your clinical dashboard on the website and via email. 

Please be aware that whilst we will attempt to communicate this information to you, you must continue to monitor the progress and mental wellbeing of all patients using Just a Thought as required under your clinical responsibilities. Do not rely on this as a sole method of monitoring and ensure further monitoring is provided during the supportive contact that you/the identified support clinician provide over the duration of courses.

You are responsible for all unauthorised usage that occurs on your account or via the prescription pads sent to you and you must:

  • promptly notify us if there is any unauthorised usage of your account or the prescription pads sent to you;
  • maintain and update your registration information supplied by you to us to ensure it's accurate at all times; and
  • only have one active account, whether this is by use of name, email address or an alias.
