Safety and Quality Programs

The Safety and Quality Programs are aligned to the Australian Safety and Quality Framework for Health Care.

The Australian Safety and Quality Framework for Health Care describes a vision for safe and high-quality care for all Australians and sets out the actions needed to achieve this vision. There are three core principles for safe and high-quality care. These are care that is:

  • consumer centred
  • driven by information
  • organised for safety.

A number of the Safety and Quality programs are aligned to the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards (second edition), the accreditation standard for assessment after January 2019.
