Stay’n Deadly and Stay’n In – an Innovative model of care to ensure Aboriginal patients receive health care
Presenters: Nioka Tyson and Scott Daley
Aboriginal patients are at high risk of not receiving treatment when they present to hospital. At St Vincent’s Hospital it was found that 19% of Aboriginal patients were not finishing their treatment when they presented to the Emergency Department. An innovative model of care, “Stay’n Deadly and Stay’n In” has been designed to ensure Aboriginal patients receive the care they require when presenting to St Vincent’s Emergency. Since the Project’s implementation the rate of incomplete treatment of Aboriginal patients in Emergency improved to 4.5 % within first 4 months of projects implementation. This webinar will discuss the barriers Aboriginal patients face in accessing health care through St Vincent’s Hospital - emergency department, the process of designing a successful model of care to improve the outcomes and the achievements of this Project. It is hoped that this presentation may inform social workers of ways to ensure Aboriginal patients receive health care through emergency departments.
