Connect is committed to ensuring that incidents which occur in relation to the provision of services are managed consistently and effectively. It is important to us that workers can identify, manage, report and resolve incidents. Connect reviews data on incidents in order to inform improvement activities. Our Incident Management and Procedures Policy outlines Connect’s processes.
Open disclosure is the open discussion with a client and/or their support person/s regarding incidents that resulted, or could have resulted, in harm to a client while receiving care.
Connect strives to create a positive culture of trusted and productive communication between clients, support persons and the workforce. Our Open Disclosure Policy forms part of Connect’s broader incident management system.
Handling of Feedback
An important source of information is customer feedback. We strive to continuously improve our service, and your feedback can assist us to do just that.
Knowing how users of our service feel ensures we can address that feedback and make positive improvements or changes to the service to benefit our clients going forward.
