On the 9th of June we will have our second meeting of the Community of Practice for Nurses. This time with Jane Poxon from The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital, from Melbourne, Australia and Reuben Cruz from Bascom Palmer Eye Institute from Miami, United States!
Jane Poxon is as Executive Director of Operations and Chief Nurse Officer responsible for overseeing all clinical operations for the organisation of The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital, including surgical and inpatient services, and ambulatory service delivery. As Chief Nursing Officer, Poxon is responsible for all nursing staff, the clinical competence framework, and nurse education.
Jane is an experienced healthcare leader who has gained over 20 years’ experience across a range of health sector organisations. During the Community of Practice for Nurses Jane will launch a new WAEH project about eye drops and how to apply them the best: all members from the WAEH can join this valuable project!
As a nurse educator and co-chair of the Nursing Quality Committee at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, one of the responsibilities of Reuben Cruz is to assist nurses in any process improvement project. He researched many different tools and publications, and has developed a 4-question tool that will help pick the most relevant and appropriate topic for the nurses to work on. He will share a very practical tool with you!
