Cross Sector Discharge Planners Forum Summary

The Summer Foundation, in partnership with other leading organisations, brought together practitioners and representatives who support younger people making the transition from hospital to the community.

In 2015-16, we ran a series of forums for discharge planners across Australia, collecting participants’ experiences of discharge planning for young people with disability and complex support needs. This document, which is a summary of the forums, highlights the current challenges faced and also captures the opportunities for an improved approach that were identified through the forums.
