Develop a deep understanding of the requirements of Standard 5, ensuring it is linked to both the governance and partnering with consumers standard.

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 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 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.
Standard 5 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.
