The QCNE is a valuable resource to provide strategic advice on high-level decision making and invites consultation with and / or representation on key Queensland Health and Hospital and Health Service strategic committees.

Current priorities

  • Networks working together with each other, HHSs and government – Patient flow, clinical pathways that cross multiple sectors / multiple HHSs.
  • Funding and embedding new models of care – Endovascular Clot Retrieval.
  • Real changes in clinical practice – Opioid Management - clinical advisory role that changes clinical practice and involves multiple stakeholders (primary care, community, consumers, allied health, nursing and specialists).
  • Solid clinician engagement in the digital rollout.
