Presentations to Emergency Departments (EDs) are increasing in Australia. However, with 10 – 25% of patients presenting to ED potentially suitable for the general practice and allied health setting, this could help address the issue of overcrowding in hospitals. John will discuss the Urgent Care model that exists in other Western Countries and provide practical examples of success in Australasia with suggestions of upscaling this model of care.
Learn how to:
Establish Urgent Care Clinics by extending hours, enabling unscheduled appointments and providing a larger range of services to manage overflow from primary care and low to mid acuity ED cases
Leverage existing models of care to manage non-life-threatening urgent conditions in the community
Be part of the solution by giving patients the option of having their minor illnesses and injuries treated in your general practice community
Access resources available online and through colleges to upskill GPs and clinical staff in the provision of Urgent Care
