Emergency Department Models of Care
The NSW Ministry of Health together with the Emergency Care Institute have reviewed Emergency Models of Care (MoC) in operation across NSW. There is now a new 2012 Emergency Department Models of Care document which replaces the 2006 Models of Emergency Care document as well as an ED Senior Assessment and Streaming Model of Care document released. These documents detail MoC
- within the ED
- outside the ED
- within the community setting
Self assessment checklists have also been produced which should be looked at in conjunction with the main MoC document.
Why did we review the MoC?
The existing ED models have evolved and been refined with implementation
Significant variation of ED MoC exists in NSW
New ED models have emerged
A self assessment checklist for each MoC may assist EDs to assess their effectiveness and provide actions for improvement
