Adelaide Project to Stop Futile Hospital Treatment

The Southern Adelaide Health Alliance is a strategic partnership between Southern Adelaide Local Health Network, Southern Adelaide-Fleurieu Kangaroo Island, Medicare Local, SA Ambulance Service and Health Consumers Alliance of SA.  

Next month, SAHA will trial a program to stop futile hospital treatment of the dying elderly.  The program is designed to help doctors make better-informed decisions about patient care and to improve the final moments of people’s lives.  Dr Chris Moy explained:  “A lot of the people in ICU are put in there because of defensive medicine."  (Herald Sun)
