The Health Quality & Safety Commission is seeking to recruit a Quality Improvement Advisor who can provide expert advice on quality improvement knowledge, skills, techniques and tools to transform processes and systems in a healthcare context – with a primary focus on the delivery of services to support the Major Trauma National Network.

This role is uniquely positioned to work nationally and in partnership with Commission staff, the Major Trauma National Network, health providers, academics, consumers and clinicians to identify and support key areas of focus for system-wide improvement design, implementation and evaluation.

You will coach and train improvement teams to build team members’ quality improvement skills and develop their organisational capacity for quality improvement work.
