What are clinical care standards?
A clinical care standard plays an important role in guiding the delivery of appropriate care. It contains a small number of quality statements describing the care that a patient should be offered for a specific clinical condition, regardless of where they are treated in Australia.
To help clinicians and local health service organisations monitor the care described in the clinical care standard, a set of indicators are included. The final indicator set will be accompanied by specifications to support consistent data collection.
