Improving hospital discharge

The Summer Foundation has developed The Housing Needs and Preferences to Support Discharge Guide and Template for health professionals to support a person with disability to be discharged from hospital to suitable housing.

By understanding a person’s housing needs and preferences, health teams can facilitate people with disability to exercise real choice and control over the type of housing they live in, where they live and who they live with.

The guide and the template assist health teams to have a very important conversation with a person with disability in hospital. It is the first step in finding housing and moving patients along the discharge pathway more efficiently.

The guide and template, funded by the Queensland Government, are designed to be used together. They can be accessed here.
