QE receives international acclaim in France

Posted on Tue, 24/12/2013

QE Gateshead is among a handful of international organisations that have had a winning poster design showcasing their quality improvements chosen to be displayed at the fourth annual International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare in le Palais des Congrés de Paris in France, in April.

This annual forum is a four day meeting that brings together over 3000 health professionals from over 85 countries, from Chief Executives and Government officials to healthcare clinicians and managers who all have a common goal and passion, to improve quality and safety in healthcare.

As part of this Forum, there is the opportunity for organisation to showcase their achievements by submitting quality improvement abstracts for poster display consideration. Gateshead has been successful in 2 abstract submissions and will be represented at the forum in April 2014.

Tracey Ward, Head of Service Improvement at QE Gateshead said: “Gateshead Health has had a fantastic 2013 in terms of quality improvement initiatives and so it is only fitting that all the hard work, innovation and improvement that has been achieved here be recognised and shared.”

“Well done to Mhairi Rooney, Ian Cardy, Helen Groom and the team whose work in developing and implementing the Medway GP handover form. “From Snail Mail to Email” will have poster representation at the forum.”

"Congratulations to Yvonne Anderson, Karen Roberts and the project team involved in “To site or not to Site” project looking at improving clinical predictors of need for stoma prep for ladies undergoing complex gynaecological surgery."
