The National Centre for Veterans Healthcare

The National Centre for Veterans’ Healthcare (NCVH) is an Australian first outpatient program that will provide a comprehensive care centre for physical and mental health related illness, offering holistic and integrated physical, mental and drug health services, which are underpinned by Patient and Family Centred Care (PFCC) principles. These principles mean that the veteran, their family and carer(s) are kept at the centre of the care provided, that our care is comprehensive and includes physical care, emotional support and that the coordination and delivery of care is of the highest possible standard. The NCVH will provide clinician supported programs and peer-to-peer support for families, involving them in treatment programs.

This webinar took place 2 PM AEST, 6 September 2019
