ARCHI is Changing
The Australian Resource Centre for Healthcare Innovations (ARCHI) website will transition from HealthShare NSW to the
Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI) from 1 February 2013.
This provides the opportunity to consolidate and share clinical information and innovative knowledge resources across the NSW health system and beyond.
The ACI is currently reviewing the ACI website (including ARCHI), and examining ways to improve the way knowledge and information is shared across the health system. Your feedback will help us to improve our services.
We will provide updates on the ARCHI transition process as we move through this review. If you have questions, please contact , Patient and Staff Experience Project Officer on 02 9464 4722.
New on ARCHI
The aim of the project was to raise the awareness among patients of Advance Care Directives (ACDs) and to improve compliance with the NSW policy. Use of ACDs gives patients a voice in their ongoing medical management and at critical life threatening times when they are unable to advocate for themselves.
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
