Referral pathways (TAS - North West)


Through collaboration with several allied health services across the North West region of Tasmania, Paramedics have the opportunity to improve their knowledge of the comprehensive services available. Developing an understanding of the referral process will lead to better outcomes for patients. Implementing sound practices to identify and refer patients for the most appropriate services will enhance paramedic capabilities.
