Safe and equitable health outcomes for all
Established to address avoidable harm in healthcare, the current NetworkZ programme strives to improve patient safety and efficiency of care in a variety of multi-professional team settings. Enhancing communication and teamwork improves team function, safety culture, and patient outcomes. Additionally, NetworkZ training is delivered in the workplace (in-situ) so tests out processes and equipment. Participants contribute to solutions to optimise their own environment.
NetworkZ promotes relationships and respect between members of the healthcare team, creating a culture where all members of the team are valued and listened to, upholding the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi in a healthcare setting.
Upskill New Zealand’s health workforce to lift the adaptability, experience and safety culture of our teams responsible for equitable and safe patient outcomes.
To positively impact patient outcomes and ensure equitable patient safety for all New Zealanders across critical health care scenarios.
We work to create strong and respectful relationships between members of clinical teams to empower individuals and the team to provide the best care to patients and whānau.
NetworkZ was established by the University of Auckland to address avoidable harm in healthcare. Since 2016, our operating room programme has been implemented in hospitals around New Zealand.
We are a large group of multi-professional people with a shared interest in patient safety and simulation-based education. Our team are committed to building the capability of healthcare workers, improving communication and teamwork skills, and delivering safer and more equitable patient outcomes.See All
