ACSQHC


The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (ACSQHC) was established by the Australian, State and Territory Governments to lead and coordinate national improvements in safety and quality.

The ACSQHC engages in collaborative work in patient safety and healthcare quality that benefits from national coordination. This includes the development of the Australian Charter of Healthcare Rights and the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards, improving areas such as patient identification, medication safety, clinical handover and open disclosure, and reducing healthcare associated infection. The ACSQHC has also developed the National Safety and Quality Framework to improve the safety and quality of the Australian health system. Other key areas of work for the ACSQHC include National Health Service accreditation, recognising and responding to clinical deterioration, patient centred care, safety and quality in mental health and primary care and the development of national safety and quality indicators as part of the information strategies activity.
