National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards
Monitoring the implementation of this clinical care standard will help organisations to meet some of the requirements of the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards.
Action 1.27b and Action 1.28
Under the NSQHS Standards, health service organisations are expected to support clinicians to use the best available evidence, including clinical care standards such as the Management of Peripheral Intravenous Catheters Clinical Care Standard (see Action 1.27b of the NSQHS Standards). More information can be found in the factsheet describing applicability of the clinical care standards and the User Guide for the Review of Clinical Variation in Health Care.
Health service organisations are expected to implement the NSQHS Standards in a way that suits the clinical services provided and their associated risks.
