Improvement Showcase

The improve­ment show­case brings togeth­er inte­grat­ed South Aus­tralian teams to con­nect, share and explore improve­ments made in healthcare.

What is it? 

The show­case is a free, themed webi­nar series host­ed by The CEIH, where par­tic­i­pants inter­act with pre­sen­ters and each oth­er in to explore how improve­ments with­in their giv­en fields can improve health­care in South Australia. 

Each week, a new pre­sen­ter team will inves­ti­gate how improve­ments are iden­ti­fied, designed, imple­ment­ed, eval­u­at­ed and what insights and lessons can be learned through­out the process. 

Each ses­sion will run for 40 min­utes with extra time for the pre­sent­ing team and par­tic­i­pants to ask questions. 

Why do we need it? 

Change doesn’t hap­pen by chance. We need to think big, try new things, col­lab­o­rate and have access to the lat­est evi­dence and data to make the best deci­sions. In order to tru­ly inno­vate, we must con­tin­u­al­ly assess and improve to under­stand how our actions make an impact. 

The Improve­ment Show­case helps us do just this by bring­ing togeth­er State health­care groups in a safe space to think about bet­ter­ing the future of health­care in South Aus­tralia and to cel­e­brate the impact of improve­ments already implemented. 

How it’s happening 

The webi­na­rs are free and held week­ly via Zoom. For those who can­not attend every week, each webi­nar will be record­ed and made freely avail­able to both par­tic­i­pants and any­one seek­ing to improve health­care in South Australia.
