Communicating for Safety Resource Portal

The portal has guidance, tools and resources to support the core skills for communicating for safety. It links to, and supports, work undertaken by Australian health service organisations in the areas of clinical communication and can be used as a resource for further learning.

This portal is based on the Framework for Communicating for Safety. It is designed to provide clinicians and health service managers with an easy navigable repository of resources to support clinical communication improvement and implementation of the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards (second edition). Communication is a core clinical skill that is essential to the delivery of safe, high-quality care and can be developed and improved with practice, experience, continuous learning, mentorship and support.
