What is a typical service pathway?

The exact service pathway will vary from person to person.

A typical service pathway for sudden onset ABI for serious injury is:

  1. The injury event
  2. Emergency services
  3. Hospital acute care
  4. Hospital rehabilitation
  5. Discharge planning and discharge to the community
  6. Living in the community - often with ongoing rehabilitation and out-patient services

In the community the person could be living independently in their own home, alternatively they could require supports to live in their home and access the community and community services.

There are multiple sources of funds that the person may potentially be able to access to pay for the services and supports they require to live independently in the community.
