In order to maximise and promote equitable access to often scarce public sector resources, in the context of competing demands and priorities, a mindset of critical analysis/evaluation and continual improvement is essential. The Women’s Health Physiotherapy Unit at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital has been fortunate in recent times to have received supporting project funds via the Allied and Scientific Health Office’s Research Seed Funding Program to undertake a range of improvement projects within our service. In this lightning presentation, Tara Beaumont will briefly describe 3 of these projects, providing broad overview of the issue, the process undertaken and the outcomes of the project.
Tara Beaumont is the Head of Unit, Women’s Physiotherapy at the Women’s and Children’s Health Network – a role she has held since 2007. She has attained postgraduate qualifications in pelvic health physiotherapy and has published research on topics related to the role and impact of Physiotherapy on women’s health.
