The Health Quality & Safety Commission is seeking to recruit a Quality Improvement Advisor who can provide expert advice on quality improvement knowledge, skills, techniques and tools to transform processes and systems in a healthcare context – with a primary focus on our Hospital-Associated Infection work programme.
This role is uniquely positioned to work nationally and in partnership with Commission staff, health providers, academics, consumers and clinicians to identify and support key areas of focus for system-wide improvement design, implementation and evaluation.
You will coach and train improvement teams to build team members’ quality improvement skills and develop their organisational capacity for quality improvement work.
The ideal candidate will have exceptional interpersonal and communication skills, and a proven ability to build strong collaborative working relationships and operate comfortably within a changing and developing environment.
An understanding, and ideally working knowledge of, healthcare-associated infection and established networks with health improvement teams in the health sector are desirable.
