EMHS Excellence Awards
At this year’s East Metropolitan Health Service Excellence Awards, two nursing research projects were finalists.
The Nurse Led Glaucoma Assessment Project
This project evaluated a nurse led clinic to address a back log in glaucoma patients receiving specialist eye care.
The clinic at RPH provided an extra 512 appointments for non complex glaucoma patients which then allowed 512 more complex glaucoma patients to be seen by our ophthalmologists.
The Mental Health Emergency Response Programme
The Mental Health Emergency Response Programme provides nurses and doctors with simulation education to help staff develop their skills in dealing with emergency mental health situations.
Congratulations to both research teams!
