Shared transfer of care
People with chronic and complex health needs are likely to experience multiple transfers across the healthcare sector. Because of this, they’re at a higher risk of experiencing events that affect their:
- trust in and journey through the system
- health outcomes
- ability to proactively manage their chronic illness.
Primary Health Tasmania’s Shared Transfer of Care program sets the standard for transfers of care by promoting a shared approach between organisations, service providers, communities and healthcare consumers.
