At the 2018 CCCN Forum, three health services shared the honours of best poster presentations. These awards were decided by a panel of judges, consumers and peers.

The work being shared in these presentations include:

  • Orthopaedic MET Calls; they're not humerus
  • ICU MET Nurse Training Program: Time for a change
  • Redesigning ICU Access - aiming to be always read

Each year at the CCCN Forum services are invited to present posters to share their local quality, improvement and innovations in critical care practice and service delivery.

Lina Breik

Lina is an intensive care Dietitian working at Box Hill Hospital, Eastern Health. Six months ago, Lina took on the role of Project Officer for the ICU Access Redesign Team. The main focus of the project to date has been diagnosing the main barriers to effective flow into and out of ICU using evidence-based improvement tools. After narrowing down the problem to five root causes, phase 2 of the project will be commencing soon which is solution implementation.

Belinda Ellis
La Trobe Regional Hospital

I have been nursing at Latrobe Regional Hospital for over 10 years, 8 of which have been in Critical Care where I completed my Critical Care certificate. For nearly 4 years (with some maternity leave in between) I have been job sharing as the Critical Care Liaison Nurse. I live locally with my husband on a hobby farm with our two boys.

I have always enjoyed assessing and managing deteriorating patient as well as attending Code Blues and Mets Calls. For this reason the CCLN role greatly appealed to me. Four years later and although I still thoroughly enjoy going to Mets and attending Code Blues, I was surprised to realise how much I also enjoy analysing data and generating reports to highlight areas of improvement – with achievable and sustainable goals.
