Brief description The purpose of this partnership project is to assess the impact of the four-hour rule policy in reducing access block and its effects of Emergency Department (ED) overcrowding on patients before and after its implementation. We will examine the trends and characteristics of patients under the policy in WA hospitals and compare them with similar patients not under the policy. This is a unique opportunity due to a natural experiment occurring in Australia with implications at the national and international levels.
