Metrixcare Presenting at NSQHS Conference 2016
A revised set of National Safety and Quality Healthcare Standards are due for full implementation in 2018 and hospitals are currently preparing for the proposed changes and how to get ready for accreditation. Metrixcare Clinical Director Dr Chris Farmer will be delivering a keynote presentation on Interpretive Thinking for Continuous Improvement at the NSQHS Standards conference to be held in Melbourne 18-19 May 2016.
The keynote by Dr Farmer will cover the topics of:
- governance perspectives on accreditation and improvement
- principles of management and governance
- optimal design of processes for performance improvement
Dr Farmer says that "the conference is timely given the continued adoption of the national standards and the anxiety some hospitals are feeling about managing these new requirements. The Metrixcare National Quality Standards Module offers an opportunity for organisations to move away from sporadic and reactive reporting of compliance to continuous quality approaches that encourage excellence."
