WCHN takes on QIPPS in support of quality program planning
Health promotion and primary prevention programs play a major role in the health and wellbeing of WCHN consumers. They form a key aspect of quality, along with patient safety and clinical effectiveness.
Women’s and Children’s Health Network staff now have access to a new web based tool called QIPPS to use when delivering health promotion and primary prevention programs.
QIPPS, or Quality Improvement Program Planning System, will help staff document how they will plan and evaluate their projects. It also provides consistent organisation-wide reports on health promotion and primary prevention activities.
The Centre for Health Promotion will hold training workshops in the next few weeks for staff to learn how to use QIPPS and input their own existing or new programs.
If you would like to know more about the introduction of QIPPS to WCHN, contact Rapsodie Barbour (Rapsodie.firstname.lastname@example.org) in the Centre for Health Promotion.
