Models of care
What is a model of care?
A "model of care" broadly defines the way health services are delivered. It outlines best practice care and services for a person or population group 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.
The model describes:
- types of activities to be delivered to patients by a provider, health professional, or care team
- types of services to be provided by an organisation
- the appropriate stage for an activity or service to be delivered
- the location or context that the activity or service will be provided in
- the health care team and community partners that will provide the service
- the policy framework for the model of care
