ACT Committees Vacancies and Projects
Calvary Communicating for Safety Committee
The primary objective of the Calvary Communicating for Safety Committee is to establish and maintain systems and processes to support effective communication with patients, carers and families; between multidisciplinary teams and clinicians; and across health service organisations.
The objective of the Communicating for Safety Committee is to improve communication, and to achieve accreditation under the National Safety and Quality Health Service Communicating for Safety Standard. Ideally, a consumer representative would have a strong interest and understanding of the Communicating for Safety Standard, or a demonstrated interest in improving effective communications in a hospital setting.
This committee meets monthly and may require some out of session work.
Applications for this committee are due by 8 April 2019, and can be completed online here.
