Excellence in quality and safety

The Excellence in quality and safety recognises innovations, processes and procedures that improve the delivery of safe, quality care.

Congratulations to Jacquie Taylor, Damien Gilby and the Monash Newborn Team for, Monash Newborn’s New Ideas Quality Improvement Board.

The New Ideas board was developed by Monash Newborn to provide teams with a transparent and standardised decision-making process for quality improvement.

Since implementation in Monash Newborn, Clayton we have received 71 new ideas. 30 have been completed and 10 are ready for implementation.

Four ideas have been recognised across the health service and two received nursing and midwifery awards in 2019 for Clinical Excellence and Monash Health Nurse of the Year.

The tool is now used across ten departments.
