Quality Improvement

The CEC’s Quality Improvement Academy aims to enhance leadership and improve frontline capability and capacity in safety and quality. We’re developing a critical mass of clinical leaders and clinical teams to undertake quality improvement.

Patient Safety

Our initiatives, projects and programs support NSW health facilities to respond to existing and emerging healthcare issues, including governance and assurance, adult patient safety, paediatric patient safety and medication safety.

Knowledge & Resources

The CEC has a range of tools and resources for patients, clinicians and health professionals.  It includes brochures for patients and their families, toolkits, reports, publications, information and data for health professionals.

To improve and support the care of the dying patient, the Clinical Excellence Commission, in collaboration with clinicians and consumer advisors, has developed a last days of life toolkit.
