Improving Standards in Your Workplace

This Course will show you how to improve standards in your workplace by utilising the Australian Safety and Quality Framework for Health Care. This tool was developed by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (ACSQHC) and is designed to help all health professionals identify current safety and quality improvement activities that may need reviewing, as well as design goals for health service improvement. If healthcare professionals understand the framework, better care can be provided through developing robust systems to ensure maintenance and evaluation of practice and patient outcomes.

Healthcare

Healthcare provided to individuals in the Australian healthcare system will be recommended based on tangible data gathered through continual monitoring and improvement of services.

I thought that the symptoms for Crohn's and ulcerative colitis are almost the same. Research has informed me that they are almost similar. One can affect all of the GI system but the other only from the duodenum to the rectum,

Target audience

Any health professional who is interested in learning more about quality and safety, or would like to know how daily activities fit into the current health care framework and the minimum standards that underpin accreditation for health service organisations.

Need

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (ACSQHC) identified that Australia required a set of nationally consistent measures, to protect the public from harm and to improve the provision of health services. By being aware of, and investing in uniform standards of safety and quality, we may reduce the increasing cost of healthcare, and meet a National Framework that sets out actions for a safe and high quality care for all Australians.

Health professionals in Australia that are registered with AHPRA are required to obtain continuing professional development (CPD) hours/points each year that relates to their context of practice, in order to comply with mandatory regulatory requirements.
