Local Health Network and general practice clinical champions have been essential to the development and implementation of the My Home Hospital model of care. Champions continue to share their professional expertise, providing feedback and supporting service improvements.
My Home Hospital's creation
Design and development of the My Home Hospital service included an extensive series of workshops and interviews with the general community and people with lived experience of hospital care to identify what is important when health care is delivered in a person’s home. This included understanding the needs of older people, carers, people living with disability, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, the LGBTQI+ community and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
Details of this process and the outcomes of consultation can be found in the My Home Hospital Consumer Engagement Report (PDF 1093KB) and in the My Home
Hospital Consumer Engagement Report (PDF 1457KB).
In designing, developing and continuously improving My Home Hospital, the following groups were included:
- nursing, medical and allied health professionals
- general practice
- aged care and disability service providers and advocacy groups
- the Commonwealth Departments of Health and Social Services
- the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission
- the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission.
