Workshop the process, explore ideas for new programs and collaborate with other providers to develop your approach to pain management

The transition from ACFI to AN-ACC will see the end of the 4b funding. Pain Management and Physiotherapy (Allied Health) will still be essential to aged care however a systematic review of all residents receiving 4b currently is required. In addition, a broader approach to Allied Health in the care model may be required.

The process of review of 4b needs to be clinically based and consultative. Experience tells us that the process takes much longer than expected.
