On 8 August 2012 Ko Awatea will be launching its IHI Student Chapter – the first of its kind in New Zealand giving students the skills, support and a voice to drive quality health improvement in the work place.
Membership is available to healthcare students (both undergraduate and postgraduate), and students are supported by advisors within Counties Manukau DHB and educational partners – AUT, MIT and the University of Auckland.
Membership of the Ko Awatea student chapter offers:
- free access to online courses click here
- interactive Ko Awatea student chapter face book page click here to like us on facebook
- monthly meetings – an interprofessional forum with a focus on quality improvement
- opportunities to get involved in projects that will make a difference to patient care, to attend seminars and be involved in conferences around quality improvement.
If you work with students please encourage them to join the Ko Awatea student chapter by registering here
We are also looking for staff as faculty advisors. If you wish to know more, please contact Wendy McKinstry as student chapter leader 2012
Many thanks to our educational partners and the willingness of CMDHB health professionals to get involved and offer their support.
All together, we can achieve better health!
