Subscribe today. After a five-year hiatus in publication Professor Joseph E Ibrahim and Dr Nicola Cunningham are delighted to announce the return of the Communiqué, an electronic, quarterly educational newsletter, that uses a narrative case-study approach to report lessons learned from deaths in acute health care settings investigated by the Coroners’ Court.

Communiqué's return to production is made possible through Victorian Managed Insurance Authority and Monash University who are supporting the return of the Communiqué as an educational resource for medical practitioners and health professionals with a focus on patient safety in acute health care settings. 

The first issue of the Clinical Communiqué examines the National Standards while pulling together three clinical cases from our past issues. 

The first issue will be available in September 2014, subscribe now so you do not miss out. The issue will present cases about: Medication and Safety -“Knowing what the right hand is doing”); Clinical Handover - “Hard to swallow”; and Recognising and Responding to ClinicalDeterioration in Acute Health 
 Care “Measuring pain and sedation”.
