The ComPacks Program has been developed to facilitate safe and early discharge of eligible patients from hospital by providing access to a short-term package of care designed to help them gain independence and prevent re-admission to hospital.
A person is eligible for a ComPacks service when they required immediate access to case management and community support which cannot be accessed through their usual channels (such as Health and Community Care; Department of Veterans Affairs). ComPacks aims to optimise patient access to the community services they need for a safe and supported return home. The package runs for only up to 6 weeks.
