This webinar will showcase the innovation and improvement work of Victorian ICUs.
At the 2018 Critical Care Clinical Network forum, three health services were awarded best poster presentations. These awards were decided by a panel of judges, consumers and peers.
The work being shared in these presentations includes:
- Orthopaedic Mets Calls; they’re not humerus
- ICU MET Nurse Training Program: Time for a change
- Redesigning ICU Access – aiming to be always ready.
Each year at the Network's forum services are invited to present posters to share their local quality improvement and innovation in critical care practice and service delivery.
