ACHSM Breakfast Forum - August 2014
















We tend to ignore things we cannot see but we do this at our peril!  For instance, antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is now recognised as a critical health issue by the World Health Organisation.  Primarily the concern of hospitals, resistant bacterial pathogens are now seen with increasing frequency in the community.

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care has appointed Prof John Turnidge to lead a program for national surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance and antibiotic usage.  (AMR & AU).

The commission has also appointed Dr Robert Herkes as its new Clinical Director.  This important role provides expert clinical advice across all the commissions nationally coordinated health care safety and quality programs.


The commission’s Chief Executive Officer, Professor Debora Picone, stated that the inclusion of two eminent specialists such as Dr Herkes and Prof Turnidge will add tremendous value to the commissions programs in Quality and Safety.
Potentially a whole new raft of standards will be established that will have to be met.
