Clinical Pathways

Clinical Excellence Division

Clinical pathways are standardised, evidence-based multidisciplinary management plans, which identify an appropriate sequence of clinical interventions, timeframes, milestones and expected outcomes for an homogenous patient group (Queensland Health Clinical Pathways Board definition 2002).

The Clinical Excellence Division has developed the following statewide clinical pathways. These were originally identified as priorities in the 'top 10' diagnosis-related groups (DRG) in orthopaedics, maternity and surgery. New statewide pathways will be developed in terms of high volume and high cost.
