Talking Quality and Safety in Oz

18th September, 2017 – 5:30 – 8:30 pm

Together with EY, the Australian Health Network is delighted to invite you to join our discussion with some of Australia’s leaders on our health system’s quality and safety.

Around the world, failures of the health system have led to harming patients and families.  In many of these cases, no one person has been directly responsible but multiple aspects of the system have failed to work together, failed to overcome organisational boundaries.  Within the system’s parameters, individuals have been unable to challenge each other and we have collectively not made our community safe.

The response by governments, here and internationally, has been to create organisations with quality and safety in their heart.  Here in Australia, we have organisations at different points of their maturity:  Safer Care Victoria has been in existence since January and the Clinical Excellence Commission for a number of years.  South Australia, Queensland and other jurisdiction have similar constructs.

So, now is as good a time as ever to talk “Quality and Safety in Australia”.

We have assembled a leading panel to provoke an insightful conversation:

  • Prof Euan Wallace, CEO Safer Care Victoria, Victoria
  • Ms Carrie Marr, CEO Clinical Excellence Commission, NSW
  • Prof Bill Runciman, Professor of Patient Safety, University of South Australia

Event Facilitator:  Prof. Andrew Way, CEO Alfred Health
