Minimising patient harm

Patients at risk of specific harm are identified, and clinicians deliver targeted strategies to prevent and manage harm.

Delivering comprehensive care

Safe care is delivered based on the comprehensive care plan, and in partnership with patients, carers and families. Comprehensive care is delivered to patients at the end of life.

Comprehensive Care Standard

Leaders of a health service organisation establish and maintain systems and processes to support clinicians to deliver comprehensive care, and establish and maintain systems to prevent and manage specific risks of harm to patients during the delivery of health care. The workforce uses the systems to deliver comprehensive care and manage risk.
