Discharge, Referral and Admission Literature Review PDF Print E-mail

This literature review was prepared for the primary use of the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care and the New South Wales Department of Health. It provides three structured evidence-based literature reviews on the benefits, enablers, barriers and challenges related to the processes of discharge, referral and admission covering Australian and International published works. The review aims to make a contribution to help inform future work in the area of transfers between hospital and the community as well as potentially between community providers.
