A "Model of Care" broadly defines the way health services are delivered. It outlines best practice care and services for a person, population group or patient cohort as they progress through the stages of a condition, injury or event. It aims to ensure people get the right care, at the right time, by the right team and in the right place (Government of Western Australia, Department of Health (2012). Health professionals cite practice systems, lack of service coordination, training in model of care implementation, time and financial restraints as some of the major limiting factors in delivering more effective healthcare, including lifestyle and social assessment and interventions. However, there are many examples of models and innovation in health care where clinical outcomes have been significantly improved and can be delivered to people in a more timely, accessible, cost-effective and whole of person based manner. In this subject you will evaluate the strengths and limits of established health service provision and solutions to delivering lifestyle and social interventions by assessing multiple models of care. An emphasis is placed on developing, implementing and evaluating models of care, individual versus group approaches such as shared medical appointments, lived experience and peer to peer models, digital and online approaches, proactive community, school and workplace strategies. The development of a new model of care must also encompass implementation and evaluation of the model and the change management process needed to make that happen. Through assessment you will develop a practical understanding of the need and process of establishing and maintaining novel approaches.
