Job overview

Our maternity services provide high quality care for approx. 4700 women and families each year. The successful candidate will play an integral role in implementing initiatives to sustain continued improvement in the quality and safety of care  through case reviews, data analysis and patient’s feedback.

The successful applicant will need to have excellent IT skills, along with great communication, and presentation skills. Knowledge of the PMRT tool and  process would also be an advantage.

Main duties of the job

  • Data entry of all perinatal deaths eligible for PMRT
  • Ensure review by Multidisciplinary team of all eligible cases
  • Be the main point of contact for the bereaved parents and ensure their feedback is taking into consideration as part of case reviews
  • Be the liaison with other units to promote external review of cases
