Models of Care
Professor Mary Chiarella has been leading the Models of Care Program since 2004. Some of the work highlighted across NSW has been underpinned by Practice Development principles.
The Nursing Models of Care Project was established to assist clinical nurses to:
- explore and develop innovative models of nursing care delivery and organisation that would facilitate best clinical practice
- develop new and emerging roles and partnerships within nursing and health care.
Workshops, seminars and roadshows have been a feature of the project, involving frontline nursing and midwifery staff and senior clinicians across NSW – using their local experience and knowledge to help implement new models of care across the state.
Specialist nursing groups have been identified as having particular needs in regard to models of care. Prof Chiarella in conjunction with the Agency for Clinical Innovation is facilitating projects in haemodialysis to assist nurses to change the way they organise haemodialysis nursing care.
Prof Chiarella is also conducting a perioperative models of care project with the NSW Operating Theatre Nurses Association.
