Statewide Clinical Communities of Practice

Statewide Clin­i­cal Com­mu­ni­ties of Prac­tice bring togeth­er peo­ple from a range of health ser­vices and care providers to address com­mon issues to improve the qual­i­ty and effi­cien­cies of care.

What are they?

A Statewide Clin­i­cal Com­mu­ni­ty of Prac­tice (SCCoP) is a sus­tain­able, informed, val­ued and large­ly self-suf­fi­cient net­work of clin­i­cians, con­sumers and the community. 

Statewide Clin­i­cal Net­works that have achieved their ini­tial work pro­gram (includ­ing capa­bil­i­ty build­ing to nav­i­gate the health sys­tem) will tran­si­tion to becom­ing a SCCoP gen­er­al­ly in a three to five year time frame. This will allow new Statewide Clin­i­cal Net­works to be devel­oped and evolve into SCCoPs, to build breadth and depth of capac­i­ty and capa­bil­i­ty in increas­ing num­bers of areas of care.

The CEIH will assist Statewide Clin­i­cal Net­works and oth­er mature net­works to tran­si­tion to becom­ing a SCCoP. The CEIH will part­ner with SCCoPs to work on iden­ti­fied projects. Exist­ing SCCoPs include:

  • Renal
  • Stroke
  • Child and Adolescent
  • Mater­nal, Neona­tal, Gynaecology.
