Clinical Services

We provide outreach clinical services to those who are housebound or residing in residential aged care facilities and disability homes.

Training and Consultancy Services

We provide health care consultancy services with a focus on leadership, quality and patient safety improvement.

COVID 19

The World Health Organization has announced that COVID-19 is a pandemic.  At Prestantia Health many of our patients are elderly or have chronic conditions and so are more vulnerable to the effects of COVID-19. We all have our role to play.  This article will constantly be reviewed and updated during the pandemic to reflect changes to our services and advice to our patients and clients.

Telehealth Webinar for General Practice

Prestantia Health's Dr. Paresh Dawda co-presented a webinar on Telehealth for AGPAL (Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited.)

The webinar was presented on 3rd April 2020, soon after The Australian Government introduced temporary universal Medicare benefits for Telehealth in light of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Video Consultations

As the COVID19 crisis escalates we are increasing our offering of video consultations to our patients.  Many of our patients are elderly or have chronic conditions. Many reside in residential aged care. We are offering video consultations as a way to reduce the risk of spreading.  We are grateful for the support of all the residential aged care facilities we visit in facilitating video consultations.

The use of our video consultation service is simple and straightforward.  Watch this animation for simple instructions.

 

Team based care

At Prestantia Health we believe the best outcomes and experience of care for our patients can only be achieved by a team-based approach to care.  Modern healthcare is complex and so a team brings the ability to manage and support that complexity in a way an individual doctor cannot. Hear from some members of our team.

Aged Care Royal Commission

Prestantia Health's Dr. Paresh Dawda provided evidence today at the Aged Care Royal Commission.

He was asked questions about many aspects of aged care and health. He discussed fit for purpose funding models to improve healthcare for those in residential aged care, the value of teamwork and need for multi-disciplinary teams, value-based approaches to providing healthcare for elderly, the integration of care including record systems.

Calvary Health Care Clinical Council

Dr. Paresh Dawda has been appointed to the Clinical Council for Calvary Health.  Calvary Health is a not for profit healthcare organisation with a mission to provide quality, compassionate healthcare to the most vulnerable, including those reaching the end of their life.  This is a privileged advisory position supporting an organisation delivering hospital, community and aged care services.

Trial of Video Conferencing

Having identified an opportunity to trial video conferencing offered by a Commonwealth Government Department of Health initiative we are pleased to soon begin video conferencing for health consultations.  We are grateful to Capital Health Network who facilitated the approach to the Commonwealth.

We will be piloting this across four Residential Aged Care Facilities for urgent clinical issues only.  We are very excited by this initiative which supports all of our values of Excellence, Equity, Collaboration and Innovation.
