An integrated care strategy for paediatric health services
Saturday 1 September | View program for more details
Paediatric healthcare has become increasingly fragmented, especially for those with complex conditions who may need to navigate multiple service providers and organisations. It is well recognised that such fragmentation leads to adverse health, social and economic outcomes. The health sector is not the only player in the wellbeing of children and young people. Other services and Government departments, including education, housing, transport and social services, as well as good family functioning are fundamentally important to child health and wellbeing, highlighting the need for collaboration and ‘joining up’ of services. Integrated care has therefore emerged as an important, contemporary theme in health care delivery for children.
