Congratulations to CaFHS finalists, ABC Parent Coaching Program and Developmental Dysplasia of Hips (DDH) Clinical Update Project.

ABC Parent Coaching Program

The Attachment Bio-behavioural Catch-up (ABC) program is an evidence-based initiative aimed at parents experiencing relationship difficulties with their infants.

The multidisciplinary team of nurses, psychologists and social workers have demonstrated commitment to improving the mental health and wellbeing of infants and young children.

Developmental Dysplasia of Hips (DDH) Clinical Update Project

The Developmental Dysplasia of Hips Clinical Update Project is being recognised for its best-practice approach and commitment to health promotion and early intervention in young children.

The project has made a significant impact in improving the way DDH is detected, resulting in a lower risk of surgical intervention and greater outcomes for patients and families.
