The Access Queensland Children's Hospital Program is an evidenced-based and clinically-led program of end-to-end access and flow improvement projects across the QCH. The program is one of many initiatives Children’s Health Queensland (CHQ) is undertaking to implement our 10-year clinical services plan, the Children’s Health and Wellbeing Services Plan 2018-2028.
The program takes a systemic approach to improvement across the hospital, with a cross-divisional, cross-professional and cross-clinical unit Steering Committee overseeing a whole-of-hospital Diagnostic, as well as strategically-aligned access improvement projects already established in Oncology and Hospital in the Home.
Numerous additional projects prioritised from the recommendations of the diagnostic reports for ED, Inpatients and theatres are currently being scoped and resourced.
The project has successfully navigated healthcare system challenges to deliver change, improvement and innovation in the health service and has presented at the Clinical Excellence Queensland Showcase 2019.
