Geriatric Rapid Acute Care Evaluation (GRACE) Service - Project Board

A baseline needs assessment compiled in 2016 by the Capital Health Network (CHN) identified the prevention of avoidable hospital attendance and hospitalisation of residents in Residential Aged Care Facilities (RACFs) to be a high priority issue in the ACT.  To address this issue the CHN approached Calvary Public Hospital Bruce (CPHB) to conduct a trial of an Outreach Service to better support the management of acutely unwell RACF residents within the community.

The Outreach Service to be trialled is based on the GRACE service pioneered at Hornsby Hospital NSW, as well as the Residential Aged Care In-Reach (RIR) Service model functional in many Victorian Hospitals.  Under these models, dedicated hospital staff collaborate with patients, their family and carers, GPs, the RACF, and hospital staff to improve the care journey of RACF residents in acute services.  A model of care has been developed and is currently being reviewed.

This is a high level position. HCCA is looking for an experienced consumer representative to join the Project Board. The Project Board (PB) is accountable to CHN and Calvary for the success of the project and has the authority to direct the project within the remit set by the project sponsor. The PB is also responsible for the communications between the project management team and stakeholders external to that team.

Meetings are held monthly and last for an hour and are held at Calvary Hospital, Bruce.
