Discharge planning

Discharge planning begins from the initial multidisciplinary team session. Discharge planning incorporates strategies for continuing care and treatment in veterans’ local communities, in partnership with the veteran, their family and carers and primary healthcare providers.

All specialists involved in a veteran’s care contribute to a unified discharge summary encapsulating the care that has been provided at the Centre. This summary is provided to the veteran, their GP and community allied health services.

Scheduled post-discharge follow-up contact occurs between the Case Manager, veteran and primary healthcare providers to review the efficacy of treatment. Further assessment or care by the Centre may be required.

The Centre may refer a veteran to a range of services upon discharge:

  • Community allied health services
  • Specialist medical services
  • Community health services such as: Department of Human Services and Department of Housing
  • Advocacy services
  • Community engagement services such as Ex-service organisations (ESOs)
