SIX students helped Princess Alexandra Hospital Harlow with quality improvement projects.
The Year 11 students, from BMAT STEM Academy, took part in improving patient outcomes and worked with hospital staff to learn about the skills of presentation.
They presented their work to the staff of the hospital. A result of this the students are being invited to be part of a larger project called Event in the Tent, an NHS initiative to focus on communication and engagement innovation within the organisation.
Paul Andrews, assistant head teacher and science teacher, said that “The students were invited to present their projects alongside doctors, nurses, midwives, porters and consultants and explained their recommendations to improve patient care to a wide range of hospital care.”
He went on further to say “This event is part of a Princess Alexandra Hospital to improve their care and quality grading, where the emphasis is on working with all hospital staff to look at ways of improving patient outcome”
