Principles and Models for Engagement with Consumers in Health Care BAA546
This unit investigates healthcare principles and models for engagement between healthcare users, their carers and family, and professionals. The importance of consumer engagement and its association with effective, sustainable organisational governance systems is studied. This involves examining theories, systems, processes and actions for partnering with consumers and delivering comprehensive care.
To operationalise these requirements, this unit investigates the application of the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Partnering with Consumers and Comprehensive Care Standards. Their dependency and integration with other standards in the NSQHS are also reviewed.
