Developing and implementing an APNE model of care and service
Part of the solution to respond to the growing demand for endoscopy services will be interdisciplinary teams of health professionals (medical, nursing and allied health staff) working collaboratively to utilise their skills to full capacity to provide safe, high-quality, patient-centred care.
While developing its own program and a template for other Victorian health services, Austin Health developed several guidance documents including an Organisational Readiness Checklist and an APNE Trainee Position Description. The Department of Health has adapted these documents for use by other organisations interesting in emulating the training and implementation pathways adopted by Austin Health and its partnering organisations. A Frequently Asked Questions document is also available in the downloads section below.
