The Medical Assessment and Planning Unit (MAPU) is a 16 bed short stay unit for patients with complex and 'undifferentiated' medical problems needing assessment before referral and transfer to the appropriate Canberra Hospital inpatient unit.
MAPU has been created to complement the role of the Emergency Department in acute assessment.
It is a designated hospital ward specifically staffed and designed to receive medical inpatients for assessment, care and treatment for a designated period of approximately 72 hours.
