Focus on innovation at The Tweed Hospital
Shirley Walker and Fran Hofstee from The Tweed Hospital (TTH) were recently celebrated at the graduation ceremony of the Centre for Healthcare Redesign Diploma Program run by the NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI).

Their project, Emergency Surgery: Why the Wait? was implemented this year at TTH with the aim of streamlining and improving the surgical journey of emergency surgery patients.

The project focused on education for clinical staff and patients around the different emergency surgery categories, as well as implementing new care pathways for patients requiring emergency surgery.

Graduates of the program are awarded an accredited Diploma of Project Management through a partnership with the University of Tasmania.

NSW Health Minister Jillian Skinner presented the graduates with their diplomas and praised their commitment to supporting innovation.

“The dedication and passion these staff members have for improving patient care in their facilities is an outstanding example of the committed people we have working across NSW Health, and I commend them on their successes,” Minister Skinner said.
