The Productive Ward focuses on improving ward processes and environments to help nurses and therapists spend more time on patient care, thereby improving safety and efficiency. Productive Ward will allow healthcare teams to redesign the way they work, eliminating waste and releasing staff time to invest in patient care. Teams are enabled to maximise quality, reduce harm, develop more efficient processes, and ensure that patients feel safe and well cared for.
