Hospital In The Home (HITH) Society Australasia Ltd
The HITH Society is the peak body representing doctors, nurses, allied health, and other health care workers in Australia, Asia & the Pacific who provide Hospital in the Home (HITH) care. The HITH Society provides education, promotes networking and through its Executive Council, represents its members by providing expert commentary and lobbying Governments at a local and Federal level on HITH issues.
How does HITH look in practice and compare internationally? Here's an article recently published in the New York Times.
HITH Nursing Scope of Practice - Clinical Interest Group
The Society is seeking to engage with members to form a working group exploring the diversity of HITH nursing scope of practice. This group will be open to all members and potential members, with a view to better defining HITH nursing scope of practice and aligning to NMBA standards. Overseen by Society board member Angela Ellis who has recently performed research in this area, we encourage interested members to join, participate and help shape HITH nursing.

What is Hospital in The Home or HITH?
Hospital in the Home is the delivery of acute and post-acute care in the patient's home as a substitute for being in hospital. HITH care is provided by clinicians from many specialties e.g. infectious diseases, gerontology, general practice, emergency medicine, orthopaedics, cardiology, paediatrics, rehabilitation, respiratory, surgery and haematology.
