NSW Health Pathology's FIRST Good Design Award

The Australian Good Design Awards continues a long and proud legacy of showcasing the very best in design and innovation to a global audience. The Awards are one of the longest-running international design awards, promoting excellence in design and innovation since 1958.

Recognised by the World Design Organization (WDO) as Australia’s peak international design endorsement and promotion program, the Awards represent the diverse spectrum of design with 12 specific Design Disciplines covering more than 30 Categories and Sub-Categories.

Each year, the program attracts new and innovative design projects from around the world, celebrating the very best in all areas of design, architecture, engineering, research and social innovation.

Entries represent projects across broad sectors and industries and cover everything from the design of everyday products we use, the services we interact with and the places and spaces we occupy, to the design of the processes and systems that underpin our businesses, industries, economies and social habits

PoCT Training Coordinator Julie Monnox brought the team together and helped deliver a virtual reality training for point-of-care-testing in the healthcare environment, a world-first. It was designed to help healthcare professionals overcome limitations of time, training costs, travel, social distancing, and the availability of blood testing devices. Through partnership between TAFE NSW, Werfen, NSW Health Pathology and CognitiveVR it aims to solve a current healthcare industry problem. The team were awarded the big green tick for Digital Apps and Software
