Click to Tick checklist for COPD discharges in Southern DHB

Patients with acute chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) being discharged from Dunedin Hospital will receive referrals and advice for correct medicine and inhaler use and a fully funded visit to their GP within 14 days in a new electronic discharge process.

Co-developed by Southern District Health Board and WellSouth primary health network, the new process involves a ‘Click to Tick’ electronic COPD checklist that is filled out by clinicians when the patient is admitted.
