The Admission2Discharge Together Toolkit is an initiative of the Department of Family and Community Services (FACS), Supported Accommodation Services Team, South East Sydney District, the Metro-Regional-Intellectual-Disability Network (MRID) and Carer Program, South Eastern Sydney Local Health District (SESLHD). It has been produced with the assistance of many highly skilled disability and health professionals who have brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to the task. This toolkit could not have been completed without co-operation and co-design between the Admission2Discharge Together Project Committee and the many people from disability and health services who have generously supported the project.
The Admission2Discharge Together Toolkit expands upon the work done by the Admission2Discharge Project, within South East Sydney to make this successful model of care available to others, wherever they may be. It provides the tools and resources for anyone who wishes to develop an Admission2Discharge Together Folder for themselves or the person they care for to do so.
The Project builds on previous models and the team would like to acknowledge the previous work of:
- Central Coast Local Health District Carer Program in developing the TOP 5 and supporting the team to adapt this for people with intellectual disability
- Gloucester Partnership NHS Trust, Walsingham NHS Trust and the Cumbria Partnership Community Learning Disability Health Team in developing the Hospital Passport
