Implementing the Partnering with Consumers Standard is fundamental to the delivery of safe, high-quality health care. Implemented together with the Clinical Governance Standard, your healthcare service will establish an individualised clinical governance framework.
This action requires healthcare services to apply principles of partnering with consumers, health literacy and shared decision making, developed when implementing the Partnering with Consumers Standard, to each criterion described in the Clinical Safety Standard. These include preventing and controlling infections, medication safety, comprehensive care, communicating for safety, and recognising and responding to serious deterioration and harm.
