Abstract

[Extract] This study site is an acute-care 12 bed hospital situated in remote north-west Western Australia and which services around 3500 residents. Sixty per cent of the township population is Aboriginal, increasing to 100% in the catchment region. Community access to health care is via the Hospital Emergency Department (ED) generating a high volume of Triage Level 4 (Semi-urgent) and Level 5 (Non-urgent) cases into an acute-care system.
