The Integrated Respiratory Service currently provides holistic care to patients and their families in the Logan catchment area for diagnosis of COPD, asthma, bronchiectasis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, pulmonary hypertension, sleep disorders; prescribed home oxygen; and smoking cessation. However, due to year on year increases in referrals, there is currently a demand/supply mismatch for integrated respiratory services in the area. Continued delivery of high quality care is dependent on the expansion of service capacity.
The Integrated Respiratory Access Initiative will expand the existing Integrated Respiratory Services model by increasing the number of clinics that are provided and by tranforming the way that current services are provided.
The innovation requires a number of services to be provided together, in a coordinated manner. The following is proposed:
This initative aims to reduce avoidable Emergency Department presentations and alleviate General Practitioner and patient concern.
This project does not conclude until March 2019.
