Care Planning

Caulfield Community Health Service (CCHS) is working in collaboration with the Department of Health, Inner South East Partnership in Community and Health (ISEPICH) and local Divisions of General Practice as part of the Plan, Do, Study, Act Model for Improvement project to enhance care for clients with chronic and complex conditions through improved systems of practice. The quality improvement focus involves improving care planning practice, particularly with general practice.

As of 1 July 2011, CCHS will utilise the Victorian Government developed Service Coordinated Tool Templates (SCTT) to create a care plan for all ongoing clients (unless sufficient Team Care Arrangement (TCA) documentation has been provided). Care plans will be generated at all new client assessments and reviewed in accordance with clinical need. Completed care plans and review documents will be communicated to GPs in the format of the SCTT Care Coordination Plan document.

CCHS can actively contribute to TCAs developed by GPs.
