Patient Access Advisory Committee

Health Improvement Unit – Clinical Excellence Division

Closing date: 3pm Friday 2 November 2018

A review of the Emergency Services Management Committee (ESMC),showed that there is a need for a greater focus on a whole-of-system approach to public hospital emergency access and flow in a patient’s journey through care. The Patient Access Advisory Committee (PAAC) has been established to support this new approach.

The Committee will:

  • Provide strategic advice to the Leadership Team
  • Review existing protocols
  • Develop steps for improvement

Who is it for?

Ideally, applicants will have lived experience with emergency departments, possibly as a frequent visitor. Experience using Queensland Ambulance Service would be an advantage, but not essential. Applications are welcome from those who have accessed emergency departments and then become an inpatient.

Timing

The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday 6 November in Brisbane. For those located in rural and remote areas, video or teleconference facilities are available.
