9:10 AM KEYNOTE PRESENTATION: Reconfiguring Physical Spaces and Models of Care at Prince of Wales Hospital to Deliver Care Closer to the Patient

With the NSW Government committing $720 Million in the 2017-18 NSW Budget, the Prince of Wales Hospital is undergoing its first major reconfiguration in 20 years. As arguably the most integrated health campus of its type in Australia, a progressive clinical services plan is in place to redevelop this highly complex campus in collaboration with the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and evolve its physical spaces and models of care. In this session, Tobi will focus on:

  • Reinventing traditional models of care through their medical assessment unit – a virtual care centre purpose built with consulting rooms, short stay beds and assessment spaces aided by virtual technology to support remote monitoring of patients through an app
  • Collaborating with UNSW on campus design to integrate spaces and create an environment that aids and encourages greater collaboration between clinicians, researchers, educators and students
  • Challenges posed by aging infrastructure that cannot hold increased capacity, and the strategies in place to expand and contemporise the physical layout
  • Change management strategies to help a relatively conservative clinical base adapt to new ways of thinking and progressive models of care, such as conducting small scale projects to demonstrate new models of care, how they work and the benefits
