The Clinical Framework for the Delivery of Health Services (Clinical Framework) outlines a set of guiding principles for the delivery of health services.
These principles are designed to support health professionals deliver the right care at the right time to clients with a transport accident injury.
By satisfying the five principles, health professionals can ensure the treatment our clients receive is clinically justified by:
- regularly evaluating treatment using outcome measures to assess its effectiveness
- providing the best possible approach to the management of injury or illness
- empowering the patient to manage their injury or illness
- establishing goals that focus on function and return to work (where appropriate)
- basing treatment on the best evidence available
Since its review in 2011, the Clinical Framework has achieved national support from all Australian states and territories, as well a range of health peak bodies and associations.
