Models of Care and Service Redesign
The Allied Health Professions’ Office of Queensland supports the redesign of models of care and workforce skill-mix in order to improve access to appropriate services in a cost-effective manner. This includes the provision of:
- opportunities for health practitioners to work to their full scope of practice (including advanced clinical practice) and extended scope of practice in appropriate contexts
- mechanisms to achieve effective delegation and support better use of the allied health workforce
- an integrated education, training and clinical governance strategy to support the effective introduction and integration of new roles
- services through use of technology to enhance service delivery.
The Calderdale Framework is available to support services in the review of tasks undertaken in teams and ensure clinical service delivery best meets patient needs.
Examples of innovation in the redesign of allied health clinical services include:
