Subacute care guidelines, policy and reporting

The subacute care sector of the WA Health system has undergone significant changes in recent years. The following resources may assist health professionals in the sector to navigate new policies, guidelines and reporting requirements that govern working practices.




The changes in the subacute care sector have been driven by agreements at a national level to improve access to subacute care services through funding provided in the two National Partnership Agreements (NPAs).
