Continuity of Care Model (see here)
Healing Pathways has worked closely with stakeholders to develop a model that highlights referral pathways for people needing to access the variety of services necessary to achieve and support their treatment goals. A brief explanation of how the model is understood is below the model itself.
This model is designed to work in conjunction with our Portal
Continuity of Care Model
This model is still undergoing consultations but has a wider family, community and social/political/economical healing focus.
Pathways need to consider a number of factors.
1. Case-management, case-conferencing and referral processes need to be clearly defined for effective and positive inter-agency and client outcomes.
2. Screening/assessment/case-management and referral tools work best if they are common between all services.
3. Family support and influence is a major risk factor to alcohol related harm and needs to be considered in conjunction with healing pathways for individuals and their families collectively.
4. Clients coming through correctional streams (involuntary clients) currently occupy most of the space in accessing services.
- The recent alcohol reforms will place pressure on Healing Pathways to offer an alternative to time spent in prison in the form of treatment and rehabilitation options. Measures of successful outcomes will be requested.
5. The need to increase self-referrals (voluntary clients) to services.
- pathways are to be client centered, self determine, accessible and flexible to client progress and ability of achieveing goals.
6. Available treatment options are currently limited and under resourced, particularly in regional and remote areas.
7. For best practice, services would function most effectively if regularly evaluated to ensure delivery is achieving the desired outcomes.
