Have your say - Improving health care for children and families in Caboolture

Have your say - Improving health care for children and families in Caboolture

In March the Health Alliance partnered with Metro North Hospital and Health Service (MNHHS), Children’s Health Queensland (CHQ) and Brisbane North PHN to jointly host a co-design event in Caboolture.  

In total, 26 clinicians attended from primary healthcare, Child Health Services, Caboolture Hospital’s maternity and paediatric services, and the Queensland Centre for Perinatal and Infant Mental Health. In addition, two local mothers attended and provided a consumer view of their care experiences.  
The event focussed on developing ideas for improving care for children and families in Caboolture, concentrating on the transition from hospital into primary care and community-based services. Several ideas were generated, themed and prioritised by attendees. Since the workshop, these ideas have been further workshopped to identify those activities most well-placed to progress. Based on this, three areas of work have been identified: 

  1. Building relationships and capability between general practice and Child Health Services
  2. Improving knowledge of the full range of MNHHS and CHQ services and streamlining referral pathways
  3. Developing and operationalising 'care teams' between maternity, child health and primary care services.

The Health Alliance and its partners invite you to have your say… 

Throughout May the Alliance and its partners will meet with local stakeholders to hear their views on these programs of work.  

On Wednesday 12 June a workshop will be held to confirm the shared view of how these programs of work can be operationalised in the local system. General practitioners, practice nurses, Child Health Services and maternity services are invited to join us to test these programs of work and discuss how they might be implemented on the ground.
