Clinical Governance Committee
The At Home Health Clinical Governance Committee is centered around an understanding of the Clinical Governance defined by the Australian Council on Healthcare standards.
The Clinical Governance Committee is chaired by our Medical Director, Associate Professor Gerard Hardisty, with clinical oversight by our Clinical Nurse Manager, Dee Donachie (RN) supported by her deputy, Clinical Nurse, Katie Beattie (RN).
At Home Care Reference Group
The Board of At Home Health is also supported by Jill Mason, Independent Disability Consultant, and Tony Edwardes, Quality, Compliance and Risk Manager, At Home Care, who sit on the At Home Care Reference Group. The Reference Group’s role is to bring together representatives from the Western Australian community to provide input and advice to ensure At Home Care are continually looking at ways to improve our service and assist in the promotion of a culture of inclusion and rights for people living with a disability.
Restrictive Practice Panel
The At Home Care Restrictive Practice Panel ensures safeguards are in place (in exceptional circumstances) where it is necessary to use restrictive practices to protect the welfare of individuals and the safety of third parties.
By doing so this will contribute to the elimination of the use of restrictive practices for people with a disability who experience challenging behaviours and ensure we are protecting the human rights of people with a disability.
It also ensures our commitment to the National Disability Standards for Disability Services and compliance with the Department of Communities Code of Practice for the Elimination of Restrictive Practices.
The Restrictive Practice Panel is made up of Dr Gerard Hardisty, MBBS FRACS FAOrthA, Dee Donachie, Registered Nurse / Clinical Nurse Manager, Tony Edwardes, Quality, Compliance and Risk Manager, and Ian Burns, Client Engagement Manager.
