The primary goals of the family meeting held at RPH will be to:
- Review Mr Thomas’ medical condition and ensure that he and Mrs Thomas understand what has happened. One way to do this is to ask opened ended questions, such as ‘tell us about your understanding of what has made you unwell recently
- The discharge team should respond to Mr and Mrs Thomas’ concerns and questions. Provide additional education as necessary.
- Organise follow-up care (transport, support, medications, therapy, food, information/education, follow-up visit)
- Organise transfer letter, scripts and referrals.
