Priorities

  • Work with healthcare providers to identify unwarranted clinical variation and develop strategies to address challenges in care provision.

Achievements

  • Development of evidence-based guidelines on cardiac monitoring.
  • Production of guidelines on the management of suspected acute coronary syndrome in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, the Ambulance Service of NSW, the Aeromedical Retrieval Services and cardiac and emergency clinicians.
  • Revision of the Clinical Service Framework for Chronic Heart Failure.
  • Statewide webcast education strategy for rural nurses. The Nurses Education Program is aimed at graduate certificate level nurses located in rural or district hospitals. Other clinicians are welcome to participate in the program if they are interested in a particular topic. The program is held monthly and participants link into the audio via teleconference and view the slides via the internet. Sites that do not have internet access are also able to participate via teleconference and the presentations are available via email from the Network Manager.
