Clinical Excellence Commission
The Clinical Excellence Commission (CEC) is the safety arm of NSW Health and strives to achieve “safer care, for every patient, every time”.
The Paediatric Patient Safety Program works across a range of areas to improve the quality and safety of health care for children and young people in NSW. The program:
- provides a centralised contact point for clinicians and NSW Health organisations to discuss children’s health care quality and safety issues
- ensures paediatric issues are addressed at a state level and appropriately incorporated into CEC programs
- works in partnership with the NSW Ministry of Health, the Agency for Clinical Innovation and all pillars to provide a voice for paediatric quality and safety issues.
