At each assessment to the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards (second edition) the Commission requires assessors to test an organisation’s ability to provide safe care including at times of high patient risk.
The purpose of this guide is to describe the actions in the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards (second edition) for health service organisations about to commence operations. Interim accreditation to the requirements set out in this document will generally apply for the first 12 months of operation.
The clinician survey is part of the end-of-life care audit toolkit and is made up of 31 questions designed to be undertaken across four demographics; consultants, junior doctors, nurses and allied health professionals.
The end-of-life care audit tool was developed to give hospitals the ability to compile data associated with the delivery of end-of-life care in a manageable and uniform way. Having the capacity to collect and analyse this data allows hospitals to review how care is being delivered and identify opportunities for better alignment with the Consensus Statement, and improvement of end-of-life care in general.
