This conference will address the challenges associated with preventing readmissions via effective discharge planning and service integration. The National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards have influenced the way consumer engagement, medication management and clinical handover are managed in hospitals. This conference will cover strategies for ensuring compliance to internal policy and national standards.

Recent research out of the US has evidenced a clear link between complicated and fragmented transfer of care and readmission rates. This highlights the importance of effective clinical communication throughout the patient journey.

This conference will address how to:

Be compliant to internal policy and the national standards
Build links with between acute and community health services
Engage multidisciplinary teams in discharge planning
Develop clinical communication strategies

What a past attendee had to say:

An indicator of how a hospital can improve, and the quality of patient care services.”
- Professor Debora Picone, Chief Executive Officer of the
Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care, 2013
