Safer Care Victoria’s Critical Care Clinical Network is developing a suite of resources to support medical emergency teams. We’re looking for clinicians and consumers to join our expert working group.

What will the working group do?

In Victoria, a medical emergency team (MET) call occurs around every 15 minutes, placing a big demand on MET services across the state. We also know that resources and governance structures vary between services.

In 2017 a quality and safety project conducted baseline work to standardise MET system priorities. Now we’re looking to expand on that work.

Our expert working group will be responsible for:

  • developing MET governance and home team engagement resources for all Victorian health services
  • refining existing MET resources to ensure they are fit-for-purpose
  • participating in activities, including regular meetings.

This phase of the project is expected to take up to three months. Find out more about the project

Who are we looking for?

  • MET/critical care clinicians from:
    • nursing
    • medicine
  • Health service executive staff or clinical governance committee members
  • Consumers with experience of critical care or acute deterioration as a patient or carer.

Why apply?

  • Contribute to statewide quality and safety improvement in critical care
  • Help develop a standard MET governance process for Victoria
  • Improve engagement between home teams and medical emergency teams.
