Comprehensive Care Standard 5

The ACHS Improvement Academy pleased to provide an interactive training session on Comprehensive care to support organisations with respect to Standard 5, NSQHS second edition.
 
This new standard was developed to address the cross-cutting issues underlying many adverse events in health care. It recognises the need for care to be centred on patient goals and wellbeing.  It also addresses important issues not included in the first edition of the NSQHS Standards, such as mental health, cognitive impairment, health literacy, end-of-life care, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health. These have the potential for significant improvements in care.
 
The new standard aims to ensure that a patient’s goals and risks of harm are identified so that comprehensive care plans can be developed and delivered to meet their needs. It also recognises the importance of teamwork and collaboration to provide comprehensive care. Along with new actions, the new standard includes actions from the Preventing and Managing Pressure Injuries Standard and the Preventing Falls and Harm from Falls Standard from the first edition.

This session will be led by Ms. Yvonne McCann. Yvonne has more than 40 year's experience at national, state, area and local health services as a clinician, educator, manager and working in senior management positions. Yvonne has worked in most Australia States in teaching, metropolitan and regional hospitals, community and health departments. She has worked in a variety of services as a frontline clinician, educator and manager. Yvonne was a participant in an Australian American Nurse Exchange program and study tour.

This training is relevant for: health care professionals including executives, frontline clinical staff, patient safety specialists, quality improvement professionals, departmental or unit team managers, and senior managers and executives - all of whom have responsibilities for ensuring continuous improvement in quality and safety following incident analysis.
 
This training will offer opportunities for interaction via Zoom for the participants. For this to be effective there can only be one participant registered per device.

I have been involved with Accreditation and the ACHS for 19 years and have found them to be a leading accrediting agency, if not the best for health care organisations.
