Wednesday August 8, 2018
Applications open from now until end of August.
The Health Quality & Safety Commission is currently inviting applications for primary care quality improvement projects for the third round of Whakakotahi.
What is Whakakotahi?
Whakakotahi is a sector-led initiative to develop quality improvement capability in primary care. Applicants can focus on any facet, element or area of patient care they have identified as important to them and their patients/whānau/community, and one that they want to improve by participating in Whakakotahi. You get to choose the initiative! Applications must support the Commission’s three primary care strategic priority areas of equity, consumer engagement and integration.
We are excited to announce that we will be partnering with PHARMAC for this year’s round, which will see the Commission introducing a specific focus on eliminating inequities in access to medicines. This is in line with the Commission’s increasing commitment to equity, and PHARMAC’s bold goal 1.
Three (3) of up to 12 selected improvement projects for Whakakotahi 2019 will have a medicine access equity focus.
