The ACI State Spinal Cord Injury Service (SSCIS) invites you or your representative to attend the Workshop for the Model of Care for Children and Adults with Spinal Cord Injury on Friday 16 June 2017.

To register click on the link РModel of Care for Spinal Cord Injury Registration 

The workshop program will include:

  • Overview of the Model of Care Project and progress to date
  • Key findings from the diagnostic phase including data analysis
  • Presentation of the draft model of care – diagrammatic model, vision, principles, and essential components
  • Seek endorsement of the model of care, vision, principles and essential components
  • Identify current gaps
  • Gain agreement on priority areas requiring further work / development for implementation.

The diagnostic phase was completed in 2016 and a copy of the Diagnostic Report is available on line (Spinal Cord Injury Model of Care).

Current work is focussed on developing an enhanced and improved Model of Care for SCI building on the model and principles proposed in the Diagnostic Report.

  • Development of vision and consensus principles which will underpin the model of care.
  • The model of care will outline a framework for all phases along the lifelong continuum of care / patient journey including immediate post injury / diagnosis, acute management, rehabilitation, transition, and ongoing / lifelong care from tertiary / specialist spinal cord injury services through to primary health services across metropolitan, regional, rural and remote NSW.
  • The model will demonstrate that patients / consumers require different levels of care and services at different points of their journey.
