Clinical Framework

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:

  1. regularly evaluating treatment using outcome measures to assess its effectiveness
  2. providing the best possible approach to the management of injury or illness
  3. empowering the patient to manage their injury or illness
  4. establishing goals that focus on function and return to work (where appropriate)
  5. 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.
