  • Specialist consultative service (medical, nursing and pharmacy) for RACF residents
  • Advice for management of residents in their RACF
  • Medication management – senior pharmacist review
  • Complex case management and support to RACFs to manage issues such as behaviours, and frequent emergency department (ED) presentations

The embedded RADAR Rapid Response (RR) team is formally changing its name to the Older Persons Emergency Network (OPEN). This team will continue to provide ED substitution care by our multi-disciplinary team led by emergency and geriatric consultants, nurse practitioners, specialist nurses and pharmacists for residents of RACFs in the Metro North catchment. The service remains a QAS co-responder ED substitution service and will be expanding to include older adult community dwellers aged >65yo or >50yo First Nation persons. Please follow the link for OPEN referral criteria and operational information.
