BridgeBuilders was a project in 2018-2019, dedicated to more collaboration in Australian healthcare. People working in healthcare, especially those in leadership positions, were encouraged to reach out to others and cross organisational boundaries.
BridgeBuilders was about connecting people with different backgrounds, building trust and facilitating relationships – key components of successful collaboration – so that our future leaders will be able to lead together.
“We must build bridges across our differences to pursue the common good.” ~ Debbie Rigby, Pharmacist
BridgeBuilders had no political agenda. There was no affiliation with existing organisations or groups.
The focus was on finding common ground and supporting shared goals, acknowledging diversity at the same time.
“Kindness builds teams which then increases patient safety. It breaks down barriers and changes mindsets.” ~ Debra Letica, Consumer/Carer Representative
