The RADAR team includes Medical Staff, Registered Nurses, Occupational Therapist, Social Worker and Dietician who will remain in close contact with the client's GP.
The team will liaise with available services such as pathology, imaging, domiciliary allied health, Hospital in The Home, Aged Care Assessment Team to ensure timely investigation and management is available for the older person in the most appropriate environment.
The client base consists of persons aged 65 years or older (younger clients may be seen if already known to the aged care team or residential facility) or 50 years for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander.
The person has suffered a decline in function/ability which the referring doctor anticipates will result in an unnecessary hospital admission within the next two weeks.
The client should not be acutely unwell and require immediate hospital admission. The person needs to be able to stay in their usual place of residence while the reason for deterioration is managed.
A GP referral is required prior to the patient being assessed.
Referrals can be made by:
