FACT: 50% of patients attended by NSW Ambulance who have an Authorised Palliative Care and End-of-Life Care Plan in place, do not need to be transported to the Emergency Department.
Ambulance authorised care plans can help you and your patients prepare for traumatic events before they occur.
Recognising some people in the community will need the ambulance services several times, the organisation, has developed a set of care plans to help them make the best decisions about your patients in the event of an emergency.
All Authorised Care Plans are completed by the GP and patient. These plans are submitted to Ambulance NSW, a copy given to the patient and need to be reviewed annually.
