The Programs

The icare Brain Injury Psychiatry Program (iBIPP) Telepsychiatry Pilot is an icare NSW funded project launching in March 2023 and running until mid-2024. The iBIPP telepsychiatry clinic builds on the success of the 2019-2022 icare Brain Injury Psychiatry Program and welcomes the NSW Ministry of Health and Royal Rehab to the partnership between the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists, The University of Sydney Brain and Mind Centre, and Northern Sydney Local Health District. It was rolled out in response to the significant demand and ongoing need for psychiatrists experienced in the area of brain injury.
