Dateline: November 28, 2009 Brisbane, Australia
As their name implies, LifeLine Australia is the group people call when they need a helping hand. During the last leg of my tour of eastern Australia, I was lucky enough to spend two days working with Lifeline’s dedicated and talented clinicians on improving the retention and outcome of clinical services they offer.
The two-day conference was the kick off for a “transformation project,” as Trevor Carlyon, the executive director of Lifeline Community Care points out in the video segment below, the stated goal of which is “putting clients back at the center of care.” Nearly 200 clinicians working with a diverse clientele located throughout northern Queensland gathered for the event. I look forward to returning in the future as the ideas are implemented across services throughout the system.
