Queensland Health's Clinical Excellence Division (CED) partners with the state's 16 Hospital and Health Services (HHSs), clinicians and consumers to drive measurable improvements in patient care through the continual pursuit of excellence.
CED does this by identifying, monitoring and promoting improvements in the quality of health services delivered by service providers (both HHSs and private health facilities, globally and within Queensland), and supporting and facilitating the dissemination of best-practice clinical standards and processes that achieve better outcomes for patients.
CED is also accountable for setting and supporting the direction for mental health, alcohol and other drug services in Queensland, as well as monitoring and reporting on performance.
It is also the conduit for the Clinical Senate and Clinical Networks to engage with the department, and provides professional leadership for clinicians through the Office of the Chief Dental Officer, Office of the Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officer and Allied Health Professions Office of Queensland.
