Clinical Framework for the Delivery of Health Services
The 'Clinical Framework For the Delivery of Health Services' is a paper which aims to help healthcare professionals deliver the right care at the right time to individuals with a compensable injury.
The Clinical Framework has been established to:
optimise participation at home, work and in the community, and to achieve the best possible health outcomes for injured people
inform healthcare professionals of our expectations for the management of injured people
provide a set of guiding principles for the provision of healthcare services for injured people, healthcare professionals and decision makers
ensure the provision of healthcare services that are goal orientated, evidence based and clinically justified
assist in the resolution of disputes.
It also outlines a set of guiding principles for the delivery of health services. These principles are intended to support healthcare professionals in their treatment of an injury through:
measurement and demonstration of the effectiveness of treatment
adoption of a biopsychosocial approach
empowering the injured person to manage their injury
implementing goals focused on optimising function, participation and return to work
- base treatment on best available research evidence.
The Transport Accident Commission (TAC) and WorkSafe Victoria, who've created the Clinical Framework with stakeholders including healthcare professionals have also created a short film with examples of how the Framework can be applied in practice.
