Integrated Care in Cowra
Treating patients with chronic and complex health conditions is the core focus for Integrated Care in Cowra and a local Integrated Care team – led by GPs from the Kendal St Medical Centre – has been established.
Right now, the Cowra team has begun discussions with other key health providers and community groups in Cowra to work out the best way to enhance community based services to help prevent unnecessary hospital admissions. The team is also working with the hospital to create comprehensive discharge plans for patients who have been admitted to hospital to help them better manage their condition at home and stay healthy.
Regular community consultation is also scheduled to be undertaken to ensure Integrated Care can adapt and evolve the to meet the specific needs of the Cowra community.
