Nikki Clelland presents ‘Improving health promotion through continuous quality improvement’, on Wednesday, 12 December from 9am-10am.
Health promotion is recognised as an integral part of comprehensive primary health care service delivery and as an effective way to reduce the onset of chronic disease. However, the high rate of common chronic disease risk factors in Indigenous populations suggests a lack of successfully implemented health promotion interventions.
Evidence has identified infrastructure and organisational capacity as key to strengthening the future of health promotion. With many health services structured as a ‘ready made system for addressing illness’, there is a strong requirement for reorienting systems to improve health promotion.
Nikki has recently commenced a PhD with Menzies and this seminar will describe her research project ‘Improving Health Promotion through Continuous Quality Improvement’ which will investigate a systems oriented continuous quality improvement model for health promotion.
This seminar takes place in Seminar Room, John Mathews Building, Royal Darwin Hospital Campus.
