Briefing Paper: scaling up responses to at-risk children in Covid19 crisis: Linking homeless children and their families to community health and wellbeing services: Using a Nurse Practitioner model of care to improve child health outcomes.

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

Current models of health care do not meet the needs of the 24% of Australian children living in housing instability/homelessness. These children have poorer access to health services and appointment compliance, increased Emergency Department (ED) utilisation, and overall poorer mental and physical health outcomes. The current COVID-19 outbreak places these children at a significantly higher risk of morbidity and mortality than other children.
