ED Culture

Inclusion, Diversity and Equity

What is inclusion, diversity and equity?

Whilst our EDs provide care to everyone, some of our patients experience barriers to them accessing emergency care. These can include past experiences as well as physical barriers. We want our EDs to be accessible to everyone. This may mean providing accommodations; however we aim to identify ways to remove barriers making the ED equally accessible to all.


WIDE-ED Working Group 

WIDE-ED working group has representation from all our EDs, including medical, nursing, allied health, and clerical staff, as well as consumers. This newsletter will highlight some important ways to improve the care of those coming to the ED.
