The Clinician's group is made up of clinicians from the four Community Health Centres located within the catchment of SMPCP.
Disciplines represented are:
- Occupational Therapy
- Allied Health Assistance
- Speech Pathology
- Social Work
The group works closely with Consumer and Community members and is supported by managers and coordinators of the four Community Health Services.
The group was established following an Assessment of Chronic Care Illness survey in three Community Health Services within the catchment.
The purpose of the group is further build in and sustain practice change as part of the DHHS Chronic Illness Care strategy. This is achieved through a collaborative method that uses the collective insight, expertise and experience of members to problem solve and make improvements.
A Care Planning Model of Care is being developed in partnership with consumers and the community.
The group meets monthly.
