The PECC team provides comprehensive assessments and care over a short stay of one to two days. A wide range of specialities and health care professionals will collaborate with the consumer, their family and carers, and other services to define a care pathway for optimal transition from hospital to the community. This comprehensive care plan will ensure effective after-care, relapse prevention, and avoid lengthy admission.
