The draft Requirements for medical pathology services (Fourth Edition) have been developed by the National Pathology Accreditation Advisory Council (NPAAC), in collaboration with the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (the Commission)

The Commission is seeking feedback from the pathology sector on these draft set of standards, and welcome feedback on any, or all, of the following areas: 

  1. Introduction: What further information is required to support your understanding of the context for the Requirements for medical pathology services and how they are applied?
  2. Language: How could we improve the language and terminology used to make it easier to understand and more appropriate and applicable to pathology laboratories?
  3. Appropriateness: Are there key governance related safety and quality issues for pathology laboratories that are not addressed by the actions?
  4. Clarification: Does any of the content require further clarification or rewording? Please provide any suggestions for these changes.
  5. Gaps and duplication: Are there any gaps in the content and how should this be addressed? Is there any unnecessarily duplicated content that could be removed?
  6. Other feedback: Please provide any other feedback relevant to the standards or their implementation.
