One of the key deliverables within the Better, Sooner, More Convenient business case developed in 2010 was the development of collaborative clinical pathways. It was proposed that clinicians from across the continuum would work in partnership to develop collaborative clinical pathways and that this programme would primarily be initiated and driven within primary care with a view to addressing ambulatory-sensitive avoidable hospitalisations (ASH).
The Collaborative Clinical Pathways (CCP) programme has been in operation for over three years. The development, implementation, and refinement of collaborative clinical pathways is clinically led. This sees clinicians from primary and secondary care settings, pharmacists, allied health professionals, public health staff, radiology staff, as well as members of other sectors such as education forming collaborative working groups.
The Collaborative Clinical Pathways programme:
- aims to identify opportunities to improve how health and disability care is planned and delivered within the district to improve patient access to a wider range of health services that are both closer to home and reduce avoidable hospital admissions
- provides health professionals throughout the district with best practice, evidence-based clinical pathways that are available at the point of care
- health professionals from primary and secondary care have worked collaboratively to develop clinical pathways that are clinically sound, current, and provide local information on service provision
- incorporates specific guidance for health professionals caring for Māori and Pasifika patients
The Collaborative Clinical Pathways Team (CCP Team) supports the collaborative working groups by providing project management and technical support for the localisation of international pathways, and subsequent publication of these collaborative clinical pathways to Map of Medicine.
