This page provides evidence-based policies, procedures, and professional guidelines for Child and Adolescent Health Service - Community Health professionals in Western Australia. 

  • These policy documents were developed to assist in the achievement of an optimum standard of community health care to children, young people, and their families.
  • These documents are primarily designed for use by Community Health staff so may contain links that are not accessible externally. All policy documents must be read in conjunction with the CAHS Clinical Disclaimer
  • Note: on 1 July 2018, CAHS renamed CACH to Community Health - however, some documents may still refer to CACH.
