Supporting Patients with Intellectual Disability and/or Autism Spectrum Disorder
Patients with Intellectual Disability and/or Autism Spectrum Disorder who are also affected by mental health issues are a vulnerable group with a high care needs.
Eventually these patients must make the transition from hospital care to adult healthcare and thanks to Good Friday Appeal support, the hospital is developing an appropriate and sustainable model of care for this transition.
This will provide a supportive framework, ensure timely transition from The Royal Children’s Hospital, and improve patient and family outcomes in partnership with external healthcare providers across Victoria.
