Clinical Excellence Commission. Year in Review 2019-2020. Medication Safety. Partnering with consumers and frontline teams

Press/Media: Press / Media

Description

When Michael Ortiz contacted the CEC Medication Safety team with concerns about the common experience for patients with Parkinson’s Disease in hospitals relating to time-critical medications, the outcome was a partnership also supported by the work and advocacy of a specialist local health district team at Coffs Harbour Hospital. With their help, the CEC issued an updated state wide Safety Notice providing guidelines on timely medications for Parkinson’s Disease patients to be implemented in all care settings, a guideline supported, in turn, by the release of a new My Health Learning module by the Health Education and Training Institute.
