Practice-level indicators of safety and quality for primary health care

The Commission has developed a national set of practice-level indicators of safety and quality for primary health care.

The practice-level indicators are designed for voluntary inclusion in quality improvement strategies at the local practice or service level, and are intended for local use by organisations and individuals providing primary health care services. 

The Commission has published a report on the development of the practice-level indicators and specifications to support the indicators for use in quality improvement in primary health care. 

In May 2012, the Board noted the finalisation of the set of practice-level indicators for local use in primary health care services. A detailed specification is also available.
