Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District (ISLHD)
Some of Michael’s achievements include working with his staff
to develop a multidisciplinary team based model of care that
is staffed at the same level 365 days a year. Together with
this group of senior clinicians Michael has helped establish a
regular teaching program for junior doctors in the ICU and has
recognised the importance of establishing a close relationship
with the University of Wollongong Medical School.
Michael has also played a key role in the commissioning of the new
expanded intensive care unit in 2015 with two distinct hubs and
a further change in the model of care. He has been instrumental
in facilitating a networked approach to anaesthetic, intensive care
and emergency services across the District, establishing rotation
of trainees and senior staff to Shoalhaven and Shellharbour.
