NUHS works with community care partners to improve workflows for patient-centred Intermediate & Long-term Care (ILTC). This includes platforms for multi-disciplinary case discussions, increasing the awareness of services available and putting in place referral workflows to move patients from the hospital to community care providers.
Training includes expanding nursing knowledge and promoting best practices among nurses from ILTC partners, on topics such as elderly care and respiratory care. This deepens capabilities and may lead to the development of new services. Occupational Therapy (OT) and physiotherapy (PT) in-service talks may also be extended, and corporate training programmes provided.
