One of ICNSW 's main aims is to work with clinicians and key organisations to identify, address, and improve clinical practice in NSW ICUs. These webpages will highlight some of the issues that have been identified and are being addressed via various projects.
ICNSW 's role in quality and safety research is reflected in two of its three main objectives:
- promoting excellence in the standard of care in all NSW ICUs by providing a forum for the systematic analysis and assessment of information regarding the quality of care in NSW intensive care units.
- facilitating an understanding of intensive care service provision including resources, workforce, patterns of demand including access issues, and other factors that may impact on the effective delivery of intensive care service in NSW.
