Read more about the Acute Care Taskforce


The Acute Care Taskforce has a history of working consumers, acute care clinicians and health system managers on the following:

  • a clinical management plan that is commenced on admission and revised throughout the inpatient journey.
  • multidisciplinary ward rounds that involve all members of the health care team including patients and their families (e.g. In Safe Hands - Structured Interdisciplinary Ward Rounds - SIBR).
  • a meaningful estimated date of discharge that is entered on admission, revised throughout the patient journey and includes what a patient is waiting for (e.g. waiting for what?).
  • criteria led discharge for patients with simple discharges.
  • planned transfer of care, within and between care settings, which involves the patient, their families and/or carers.
