Investing in our future leaders

Thirty four graduates across ten Local Health Districts and Specialty Health Networks have graduated from the Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI) Centre for Healthcare Redesign at a ceremony in Sydney yesterday.

Graduates were awarded a diploma of project management by the Hon. Jillian Skinner MP, Minister for Health, after showcasing the results of their projects to fellow school graduates, their Local Health District sponsors and ACI redesign leaders.

ACI Chief Executive Dr Nigel Lyons said the program builds skills and confidence and will help to improve the way healthcare is delivered.

"Increasing the capability of healthcare staff to partner and lead local healthcare innovation, service redesign and improvement in their own workplaces, benefits patients right across NSW" said Dr Lyons.

"Local health services and specialty health networks should be commended for continuously investing in their people to learn new skills and collaborative ways of working that can drive change and improvements across every sector of healthcare" said Dr Lyons.

The program provides professional development opportunities for clinical and non-clinical staff leading priority projects in patient care improvement or innovation. To date, the program has seen 398 improvement leaders graduate across a range of NSW metropolitan, rural and statewide health services.
