Our Events

The SingHealth Duke-NUS Quality and Innovation Day is an annual event aimed at bringing together thought leaders, faculty, clinicians, researchers, educators and medical students to SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Medical Centre (AMC) to inspire and enable all at SingHealth and Duke-NUS to constantly improve care quality and safety for our patients.

It is also a learning platform for bright minds and subject experts to share their experiences and expertise and celebrate the innovation and quality improvement efforts and achievements of our SingHealth staff.

Themed “Quality and Innovation for Tomorrow’s Medicine”, the event this year attracted more than 670 attendees and featured an exciting line-up of programs and speakers from SingHealth and other industries such as National Health Innovation Centre Singapore and Siemens Healthineers. (more...)

The SingHealth Duke-NUS Patient Safety Week marks our dedication to reaffirm our commitment to Patient Safety and Target Zero Harm, where all our institutions across the cluster lead their own initiatives where they too, renew their commitment to Target Zero Harm.

Last year, the week of events was kicked-off at the Auditorium in Academia, over a 2-hour program where audience learnt about the TeamSPEAK® journey in SGH by A/Prof Ng Heng Joo and were later able to share their thoughts and participate in a panel discussion on the theme – Speaking Up for Patient Safety.

The kick-off event was concluded with a recitation of the SingHealth Patient Safety Advocate Pledge where our Core Leaders, Institution Heads, and Domain Leads were invited onstage to recite the pledge together with the audience. (more...)

Cross Institutional Infection Control (CIIC) Appreciation Lunch for Auditors


IPSQ adopts an integrated approach in managing patient safety and quality and encourages interdisciplinary collaborations and coordination among our stakeholders and partners. The CIIC Audit Framework was set up to ensure high level of standards in infection prevention and control and as many as 150 inter-professional CIIC Auditors from the stakeholder institutions have been appointed since 2016.

 

We standardize our audit parameters & formulation for Hand Hygiene Rate and Environmental Hygiene Index. As part of the efforts to drive the professional development track for the CIIC Auditors, a cluster-wide CIIC audit curriculum and a harmonized platform to capture cross-institution audit data for effective data management and reporting were developed.


These CIIC Auditors are recognized and rewarded for their relentless commitment and achievements through the annual CIIC Auditor’s Appreciation event. These efforts have allowed our institutions to reach and maintain very high standards of hand hygiene and environmental hygiene.
