The Subacute group resolved to focus their meetings, analysis and report development on the Rehabilitation and GEM streams. From a benchmarking viewpoint, the Health Roundtable has been working to develop a Subacute suite of reports to enable peer comparison and performance analysis, based on data, which is comparable to the level of analysis provided for acute admitted patients. The Health Roundtable acute patient reports have evolved and matured over the past 20 years, whereas Subacute reporting is continuing to evolve.

We would like to invite your Health service to participate in our 2019 meeting on November 20 & 21 in Brisbane, the theme of which is “right place, right people, right care”. to discuss members success and challenges in sub-acute care and leave inspired and with ideas and an action plan to improve quality patient outcomes.

2019 Guest speakers:

A/Prof Gideon Caplan Director Post-Acute Care Services and Geriatric Medicine, The Prince of Wales Hospital. Gideon will present the background and preliminary findings related to Intranasal insulin for the management of delirium in patients over 65 years old.

Prof Tim Geraghty, Medical Chair, Division of Rehabilitation, Metro South Health and Deputy Director, The Hopkins Centre: Research for Rehabilitation and Resilience. Tim will present the 2019 Standards for the provision of Inpatient Adult Rehabilitation Medicine Services in Public and Private Hospitals.

Dr Amelia Crabtree, Consultant Geriatrician, Alfred Health. Dr Seuss meets #endPJ paralysis, Amelia will present her patient information book “Get dressed, Get moving, Get better!”

The suite of subacute reports (mainly Rehab and GEM) cover:
