This unit provides for knowledge development in complex care planning, delivery and coordination with a focus on developing knowledge about the principles, practices and relevance of client focused practice in complex care. Students will appraise risk factors for maintaining health and well-being for clients with complex needs. Themes in this unit refer to environmental social and clinical assessment, the delivery of clinical programs in the home and funding arrangements and their use to provide care. Students manage complex care coordination, and in doing so need to further develop their knowledge and skills of the community context and local service providers, methods of delivery and eligibility criteria, and effective use of technology to manage and share client information.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
- Evaluate evidence-based guidelines to benchmark existing models of care coordination.
- Appraise specialised care coordination concepts and related theory to inform care coordination practice and person-centred delivery.
- Evaluate an evidence-based systems framework that assists in the management of chronic conditions through collaborative approaches.
- Investigate and analyse evidence-based practice to complex care coordination situations.
- Interpret legislation and discipline specific knowledge in regards to the legal, technical, ethical and cultural aspects of care coordination.
