This year, more than 40 QEII Hospital staff attended the annual QEII Allied Health Innovation Day to showcase their innovative work and to learn what research and projects are taking place throughout the hospital.
Director of Allied Health Mr Leo Ross said allied health staff were doing great work to improve the quality of care provided to patients.
“Everyone is working so hard in their own departments they don’t always get a chance to visit other units and see the innovations taking place,” he said.
“Today provided an opportunity to connect and share research, projects and ideas. All for the purpose of improving the care we provide our patients.”
Topics discussed included the benefits of student-led group models of care, patient-centred care, digital hospital innovations and new volunteer-led social lunches for patients.
The Nutrition and Dietetics team were the stars of the day—winning all four of the ‘paper’ submission categories.
Mr Ross said the allied health team would showcase their work to the rest of the hospital at the QEII Innovation Day to be held on Thursday 8 November.
