Friday, 28 August, 2015

The National Safety and Quality in Health Services Standards were introduced in 2011 by The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (the Commission), under the National Health Reform Act.
The Commission is now preparing to release its second edition of the Standards, and has released a draft edition for public feedback.
Public consultation on the draft version 2 of the NSQHS Standards is now open and feedback can be provided until 30 October 2015.
The Commission wants to hear from anyone involved in health care during this consultation period, including consumers, health professionals, health service managers, health departments, technical experts and accrediting agencies.
Your feedback will help ensure that version 2 of the NSQHS Standards addresses the major safety and quality issues in healthcare, that they are easy to understand, and that they are applicable to you and your work.
To complete an online survey:
For consumers or consumer organisations: complete an online survey at NSQHS Standards Review – Survey for consumers
For health service organisations: complete an online survey at NSQHS Standards Review – Survey for health service organisations
Please note you can only submit one response per computer. If you wish to submit multiple responses from different people or on behalf of different services on the same computer please email for an additional URL.
