New and complex challenges for the healthcare system mean that the pursuit of excellence in healthcare is more important than ever. Building a culture of excellence presents an opportunity to change practice, foster new ideas and innovation, and open paths to better healthcare outcomes. This can only be done by working together across diverse healthcare settings, organisations, and issues.
The Partnerships Program builds and strengthens partnerships to help shift the system and transform great ideas and consumer needs into innovative and sustainable solutions for improved healthcare.
Working in partnership means the benefits of shared knowledge, skills and resources can co-produce outcomes that meet partners’ expectations and considers consumers in all that we do.
Watch this space for useful tools and resources to support partnership action in the state’s health sector to create sustainable and effective healthcare outcomes.
