Safer Care Victoria (SCV) is excited to invite health services to participate in the ‘Best Care for Heavy Menstrual Bleeding’ initiative.

This initiative is a part of the 100,000 Lives program which aims to reduce harm and improve health outcomes for at least 100,000 Victorians over five years. 

Why join the Heavy Menstrual Bleeding Initiative? 

  • Learn and utilise improvement science to improve patient outcomes. 
  • Improve treatment and care aligning with Heavy Menstrual Bleeding Clinical Care Standards. 
  • Receive individualised and tailored support from the SCV project team to help you build your project team and identify appropriate changes to test at your health service.  
  • Participate in regular individual coaching to help your project team progress and improve patient outcomes. 
  • Participate in interactive workshops and sharing of knowledge across the healthcare sector. 
  • Learn from consumers/clinicians who have personal and/or professional expertise regarding management of heavy menstrual bleeding.  
  • Grow and develop your professional network within the healthcare sector to optimise transitions of care within the patient journey. 
  • Access to online resources to build your skills and training in quality improvement (e.g. IHI Open School)

Who are we looking for?

Expressions of interest are open to all Victorian hospitals, GP clinics and other community health services that provide care to people with heavy menstrual bleeding. We would like to partner with metropolitan and regional cross-sector teams or ‘hubs’ that include representation from:

  • Primary care – GPs, nurse practitioners, Practice Manager and/or other medical staff 
  • Consumers and consumer advocacy groups
  • Tertiary/ Secondary care – Gynaecologists, GP Liaison, Operations Management 
  • Community Health Services (e.g. Sexual Health Clinics, Sonographers, Maternal Child Health Nurses, Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations)

Participation in the ‘Best Care for Heavy Menstrual Bleeding’ initiative provides a unique opportunity for consumers and clinicians from community groups and primary and tertiary health services to learn from and collaborate with health services and people in your local community who provide and receive care for heavy menstrual bleeding in Victoria.

Working together across the patient journey is how we can make the greatest impact and share resources and knowledge.
