The Research and Innovation Award
The Research and Innovation Award recognises those who, through their translation of research into practice, have demonstrably contributed to the development of a culture of evidence-based practice and improved quality of care.
Mind In Labour, Mind In Life
This collaboration between the Perinatal Infant Mental Health Service and the Women’s and Babies department aims to reduce anxiety, depression and stress in pregnancy and beyond.
Based on research conducted both at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital and internationally, this course teaches childbirth education to pregnant women and their partners, with the aim of preparing them for childbirth as well as life after birth.
Rapid Assessment Consultation Evaluation and Review (RACER)
RACER improves the accessibility of mental health support for children, young people, and their families by creating and implementing designated referral pathways for timely and targeted intervention and has seen a significant decrease in representation rates.
The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) is being recognised for the development of this initiative which addresses the increased demand for urgent assessments of young South Australians in distress.
SA Health Stillbirth Autopsy and Investigations Project
This project provides vital education to parents and staff to inform them of choices surrounding birth, autopsy and investigations, and postnatal support.
It is being recognised for its respectful, evidence-based approach that supports bereaved parents all throughout their care and into subsequent pregnancies.
