BOPDHB and our three local PHOs are all committed to continuous quality improvement. Bay Navigator has been established to support quality improvement.
Primarily the IAG group is designed to provide strategic leadership and performance monitoring for the vaccination system, from the population and locality perspective in BOP. This overview position provides advice to BOPALT for primary care and the Executive DHB team through Simon Everitt as GM Planning & Funding.
The IAG now has a Strategic Plan in place; (latest draft here) and is leading operational improvement activity through a temporary Project leader role for Childhood Immunisation.
The full vaccination picture includes Flu, HPV and other vaccination surveillance for our population.
The primary care system of delivery is central to successful vaccination in the community and therefore it is desirable to have GP practice leadership, preferable through the chair role for strong legitimation and engagement. The role involves monthly meetings of 1.5 hrs and is supported by the PM for Planning & Funding role and the wider TTO and Planning & Funding teams.
