Consultations – Clinical Care Standards
There are no public consultations open at this time.
What are clinical care standards?
Clinical care standards play an important role in guiding the delivery of appropriate care and help to address unwarranted clinical variation. They contain:
- a small number of quality statements describing the care that a patient should be offered, regardless of where they are treated in Australia
- a set of indicators to help clinicians and healthcare services monitor the care described in the clinical care standard and to support local quality improvement
- information about what the statements mean for patients, clinicians and healthcare services.
Outcome of consultations
Following public consultation, the Commission reviews all comments and uses this analysis to finalise the draft clinical care standards.
