Are you an awesome person? Do you live in Alberta? Are you interested in improving surgical care provided to Albertans? If so, here is an opportunity for you…..
“The Surgery Strategic Clinical Network is seeking members for the new Provincial Working Groups in Surgery described in the 2018-2021 Alberta Surgery Plan.
There are three Working Groups available:
Access to Surgical Care
Surgical Safety & Quality
We’re looking for people who are committed to improving surgical care provided to Albertans. We need people from all five AHS Zones including citizens, patients and family members, hospital specialists and primary care physicians, nurses and allied health, operations and support staff and others. Members must be willing and able to work as a team to develop innovative, practical and feasible solutions to the most important problems facing our system. Members will bring their own experiences to the table but must also be willing and able to think about the provincial system as a whole. Previous experience in quality improvement would be an asset but is not essential.”
