    Women shine brightly in the Murrumbidgee, as the local health district (MLHD) has placed the spotlight on its staff.


    The top teams

    There are seven team categories, with awards for Keeping People Healthy, Digital Innovation, Enhancing People and Culture, Enriching Consumer Experience, Exceptional Aboriginal Healthcare, Patient Safety First and Research.

    The team from the Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) Pathway Intervention Times research is a finalist for the Research Award.

    Undertaken collaboratively with Charles Sturt University's Three Rivers Department of Rural Health, the research aims to better understand the connection between Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) pathways and better treatment outcomes.

    The results revealed a strong association between ACS pathway use and improved intervention times, which has led to dedicated education and promotion efforts by clinicians.

    It also has internal support for a second stage of the project to examine the experiences of ED nurses when deciding whether to use the pathway.

    To see all of the finalists for the 2024 MLHD Excellence Awards, and why they're nominated, visit MLHD's YouTube.

    Winners will be announced at a gala presentation evening on Friday, June 14.
