Group Session

A Group Session is a SESSION.

A Group Session is a SESSION held by at least one member of a health promotion staff group as part of a HEALTH PROGRAMME to improve the general awareness of a group of PEOPLE about particular functions, conditions or aspects of behaviour affecting the health of the community.

For the Community Services Data Set, Group Sessions are recorded when the attendees at the SESSION are not known in advance, and clinical notes are not made in individual PATIENT records.

Note: Where the attendees are known in advance, and clinical notes are made in the PATIENT record for each PATIENT, this is recorded as Group Therapy.

For the Mental Health Services Data Set, Group Sessions exclude Mental Health Drop In Contacts where each PATIENT is seen individually.
