Plenary five: Choosing wisely
Cecilia is an Emergency Medicine Specialist at Waitemata DHB. Her passion is the consistent provision of excellent patient care despite service challenges.
She has spearheaded the development of a set of comprehensive nurse initiated patient care pathways called Best Care Bundles. The bundles aim to safely initiate specific treatments and special investigations for patients with conditions that meet the criteria, in order to expedite relief of discomfort, speed up flow through the department, but also to standardise care (in line with international best evidence) and streamlining follow up care.
It is her vision that all patients in Australasia will get the same high standard of care, no matter which department they present to.
