She has extensive experience in the application of Quality methodologies to meet the accreditation criteria created by government agencies in the acute and aged care sectors.

In her role as Assistant Director of Nursing & Quality Manager of a medium sized private acute hospital, Cheryl was central in the application of the EQUIP criteria required for accreditation by the ACHS and led the facility in the implementation of medical clinical indicators which was a central part of the accreditation process. The Hospitals Quality Program was recognised by the Australian Private Hospitals Association via a national award for Quality and Excellence
