About Monash Health

Monash Health is Victoria’s largest public health service. We provide safe, high-quality care to one-quarter of Melbourne’s population, across the entire lifespan, from pre-birth to end-of-life.

More than 18,000 of us work at over 40 care locations across south-east Melbourne, including seven hospitals and an extensive network of rehabilitation, aged care, community health and mental health facilities. 

About the Service

The Developmental Paediatrics Team is an assessment and consultation team that completes assessments of children and who show complex neurological, developmental, and behavioural symptoms. It operates under the Children’s Program, Monash Children’s Hospital.

The Developmental Paediatrics team provide inter-professional joint assessments and case conferences to inform diagnoses and

recommendations. Feedback appointments are held with the families and reports outlining management strategies are provided. Children and families referred to Developmental Paediatrics have often had a range of previous assessments and the referral represents an identified need in referrers for inter-professional clinical assessment and formulation of often very complex issues. Inter-professional assessment refers to assessment completed by three or more clinicians of different discipline backgrounds within the Developmental Paediatrics Team. The model is used flexibly and aims to holistically contribute to a broad understanding of a child’s presentation and needs.  For example, the members of the inter-professional team and the number of sessions required are determined based on the needs of the young child, family, referrer, and others. Engaging in a joint case conference process leads to recommendations that support the health and wellbeing of the child, their family and their relevant community supports.
