ARCHI is Changing
The Australian Resource Centre for Healthcare Innovations (ARCHI) website will transition from HealthShare NSW to the
Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI).
This provides the opportunity to consolidate and share clinical information and innovative knowledge resources across the NSW health system and beyond.
New on ARCHI
A trial of early mobilisation in elective orthopaedics in the rural context. A single blinded randomised control trial was conducted assessing the efficacy of early mobilisation on length of stay and secondary sequelae development. Results showed a downward trend in average length of stay and pressure ulcer incidence, as well as increased quality of life compared to the current standardised pathways.
Essentials of Care (EOC) is a framework for the evaluation of the essential care provided at the clinical ward and unit level.
Using transformational practice development methodologies healthcare teams are engaged in the evaluation and development of the clinical care provided.
The Safe Clinical Handover Program has been expanded to include three new projects:
- JMO Clinical handover - Improving patient safety through consistent and quality clinical handover at all shift changes for Junior Medical Officers (JMOs).
- GP/Hospital handover - The conceptualised GP/Hospital clinical handover project aims to improve transfer of clinical information in both directions between acute facilities and General Practice.
- Ambulance to ED handover - The NSW Ambulance to Emergency Department project was established to develop a handover protocol that ensured the smooth transfer of pre-hospital care in the acute setting
What is ARCHI?
