Geraldton District Hospital BPSO Steering Committee

In an interdisciplinary team approach, a BPSO steering committee has been developed to work towards implementation of three selected best practice guidelines to achieve recognition and designation as a Best Practice Spotlight Organization. The steering committee will meet monthly to plan, implement and sustain momentum in this project. Our steering committee members can be noted in the picture below.
