Linkage Strategies

Promote inter-organisational linkages that can be employed across services of all sizes, locations and serving all populations.

One key component of ELDAC is a program of activities designed to build linkages between service providers in specialist palliative care services, primary care and the aged care sector. Building such partnerships ensures we optimise the capacity of services to provide the best possible care at end-of-life in a timely way. This care addresses the unique needs for all in our community, including people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex groups.

Linkage Strategies

The ELDAC Working Together Program uses evidence-based practices to promote inter-organisational linkages. This includes linkage strategies which include practical methods and resources that can be employed across services of all sizes, locations and serving all populations.

Within each Linkage Strategy a range of activities can be undertaken to realise the strategy. For example, improved communication pathways can include implementation of handover forms and tools, standardised referral forms, referral pathways and shared care plans. Role clarification can be a formal, facilitated process involving large teams, or can be an intentional structured discussion between two providers.
