Commission’s Clinical Care Standards Update

The uptake of the Commission’s Clinical Care Standards indicators has continued with the second half of 2021 submission, with ACHS offering the same benchmarking service and reports as our internally developed Clinical Indicators.

As part of ACHS continued support for these indicators we are proud to announce the ACHS manuals for them will be available from the start of April 2022. 

The intention for the creation of the manuals was to produce all the information contained within both the Commission’s Clinical Care Standard indicators and definitions on the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) websites in one place. These manuals will be available on the ACHS website under the POS resources section.

The next set of indicators to be released by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Healthcare will likely be the Opioid Analgesic Stewardship in Acute Pain Clinical Care Standard. ACHS aims to have these indicators available shortly after release.

If you are interested in submitting these sets and if they are not available for you in PIRT, please contact the POS team and we will facilitate this. Please send requests to
