The Oran Park Story: creating & evaluating an Integrated Primary Care Centre
Discussion:This initial stage of evaluation indicates that while patients are not highly aware of the integrated model that underpins delivery of care at OPFH, they see the need for a greater volume and variety of services at the centre to serve the rapidly growing, predominantly young population. Stakeholder feedback also highlighted the need for a variety of services at OPFH, although the specific services prioritised by each group differed substantially.Lessons:In future stages interview data will be obtained from external providers referring clients to OPFH (Group 3) and practice data linkage with Hospital/District rec...

Care Coordination for Vulnerable Families in the Sydney Local Health District: What Works for Whom, under What Circumstances, and Why?
Conclusions: This study suggests that a care coordination model may be effective in engaging disadvantaged families in healthcare, assist them in navigating the health system and can lead to beneficial health and social outcomes. Successful implementation of care coordination requires flexible programme design and experienced and skilful clinicians to fulfil the care coordinator role. There is a need to appreciate the negative impact that the complex and siloed health system can have on disadvantaged families.

Care Coordination in Palliative Home Care: Who Plays the Key Role?
Background: Clearly identified professionals who are appointed for care coordination are invaluable for ensuring efficient coordination of health care services. However, challenges to identifying roles in palliative care are well documented in literature. Notably, in order to meet high demands on palliative home care settings, many care practitioners perform tasks that surpass the responsibilities and regulations of their role, including care coordination. Without clearly defined roles, standards of care cannot be guaranteed. Yet, little is understood about who plays the key role in palliative home care.Aim: The present st...

Formal Long-Term Care: Informal Caregivers ’ Subjective Well-Being and Service Utilization
This thesis aimed to elucidate the role of informal caregiver subjective well-being in explaining formal long-term care service (LTCS) use. A systematic review and meta-analysis of literature found that elevated caregiver burden, caregiver depression, and poorer caregiver health status are associated with increased formal LTCS use. Quantitative analyses of longitudinal data collected from stroke survivors and their caregivers revealed that increased caregiving burden and caregiver depression are prospective and concurrent predictors of stroke rehabilitation use at 12-month post-stroke, and that non-distressed caregivers at...
