7.8. Home-Based Primary Care (HBPC)
The HBPC program is an appropriate referral source at non-SCI Centers for enrolled Veterans. The training of the caregiver in maintaining the Veteran in the community is an important service HBPC can furnish. Encouragement to work with this population may be fostered by periodic contacts by the SCI Support Clinic or SCI PCT with the HBPC Coordinator. Follow-up, coordination, and referral by the SCI Coordinator with the HBPC Coordinator for special procedures beyond the capacity of the HBPC team are important factors for successful home living.
NOTE: Consideration is given to the developed treatment plan and objectives in consultation with the SCI/D Support Clinic or SCI/D PCT.
