Consumer Vacancy: Statewide Paediatric Sepsis work group

The Healthcare Improvement Unit within the Department of Health is seeking consumer representation on the Statewide Paediatric Sepsis work group.

The work group meeting will be held in Brisbane from 11.00-12.00 on the first Friday on each month except for November 2017 and January 2018. Video and teleconference facilities will be available if you do not reside in Brisbane.

Support to attend:  The consumer will be paid $187 to participate in the meetings.
