The SCV annual plan 2022–23 details what we will deliver in the next year to achieve our vision of outstanding healthcare for all Victorians.
The plan details key activities and targets against our strategic priorities:
- Partnership and planning
In the next year, we will:
- continue our 100,000 lives initiative, a five-year program of work to prevent harm in hospitals, reduce readmissions and ensure safer, more effective and person-centred care for 100,000 Victorians
- continue implementing a new mental health improvement unit, a key recommendation from the Royal Commission into Victoria's Mental Health System
- focus on the Healthcare worker wellbeing centre, the first of its kind in Australia, which provides support for all who work in clinical and non-clinical roles in health services, community health, aged care, and primary care.
- establish a Consumer Caucus, to strengthen consumer partnerships, support, inform and lead projects
- set up a series of Learning Networks, to improve operational, clinical, and workforce outcomes
- implement the Duty of Candour Legislative reforms, ensuring that health services apologise to any person seriously harmed while receiving care, allowing families access to the information that comes from a health service’s review, and providing a protected space for health services to conduct the review
- provide secretariat support to the Voluntary Assisted Dying Review Board, the Consultative Council on Obstetric and Paediatric Mortality and Morbidity, and the Victorian Perioperative Consultative Council
- develop and implement new engagement and advisory bodies including governance and oversight committees that will deliver insights and guide SCV’s work.
