Chronic Care for Aboriginal People Program
New South Wales Department of Health
This toolkit is the deliverable output from the networking party. It provides a definition of 48 hour follow up (numerator/denominator), as well as outlining process steps required to be implemented to deliver a sustainable process. This toolkit must not be used as a definition of exactly how 48 hour follow up must operate in every facility. The reality is that every facility in every AHS is unique and will require local interpretation of the process steps identified.
The processes implemented across each AHS should be conducive to sustainable 48 hour follow up of Aboriginal patients with chronic disease, and not be dependant upon a specific group of individuals. It is intended that processes for 48 hour follow up of Aboriginal patients with chronic disease are integrated with mainstream services.
Further support in the development of 48 hour follow up processes will be delivered to AHS project teams via the standing Walgan Tilly project teleconferences and site visits.
