This is an opportunity to showcase the range CQI work being done across the country in order to improve the quality of care offered to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients and communities. A national reference group is providing advice and guidance on the conduct of the study. CHETRE would like to invite you speak with them about your work in CQI to give your perspectives on your experience in implementing CQI activities in your centre or program or service. CHETRE is interested in your views on the strengths and weaknesses of the activities, system, and tools you are using to conduct CQI, and on your views about how the activities contribute to improving the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. The purpose of the work is to develop recommendations about what is needed now, to improve on what is being done, so that we can continue to improve the quality of primary health care available to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients and communities. If you would like further information about this work or to participate in a discussion about your work (and that of others in the field), please contact Ms Sandra Angus, Senior Research Officer on T: 07 3146 4273 or M: 0414 445 788 or Assoc. Professor Marilyn Wise on T: 02 9612 0779.
