Healthcare awards honour safety and quality delivery


ACT Minister for Health Ms. Katy Gallagher MLA announced today that nominations are now open for the Quality in Healthcare Awards 2007, which recognise leadership and innovation in patient safety and quality.
The application period for the Quality in Healthcare Awards 2007 commenced on Thursday 31 May and will close on 10 August 2007.
“These Awards publicly honour innovations that improve the delivery of safe quality care within the ACT healthcare system,” Ms Gallagher said.
“The five award categories: Safety, Access and Efficiency, Innovative Models of Care, Consumer Participation, and Systems Support, are essential elements of a truly quality healthcare system.”
“This is a great way of encouraging safer approaches to patient care,” Ms Gallagher said.
The awards are open to individuals or teams working in health in the ACT, or studying a health related field in the ACT.
Winners of each category will receive trophies at an Awards presentation dinner in November 2007.
