North Richmond Community Health

An overview of North Richmond Community Health's project.

What is the project?

North Richmond Community Health acknowledges that health care organisations must be more responsive to the needs of patients and not just deliver predetermined services. The conference they are planning will help share the health care experiences of the area’s diverse community with health care professionals. This will provide a different perspective on service delivery.

Demos Krouskos, CEO of North Richmond Community Health said "Health Issues Centre’s support and insight will be invaluable in our efforts to improve consumer outcomes and help change consumer health care practices. We're looking forward to promoting innovative practices and a new inclusive, responsive and integrated care approach."

Consumer and carer representatives on the project working group will assist and lead the direction of the project. The project will support and involve consumers as presenters, as project leaders and as participants in multimedia stories.

Danny Vadasz, CEO of Health Issues Centre, said that “North Richmond Community Health is setting an example of how health services can include members of the community in major planning. Their ‘Conversations about Care’ conference will weave consumer experiences throughout the agenda.”
