Does your community health service implement the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards? The second edition of these standards was released by the ACSQHC in November last year.

This latest edition includes new information on mental health and cognitive impairment, health literacy, end of life care, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health. It also has updated the evidence for actions and streamlined the standards to make them easier to implement.

You can download a copy here: National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards (second edition) (PDF 2MB).

Users of the current Guide to the NSQHS Standards for community health services, released by the ACSQHC in February 2016, are invited to give their feedback via a survey. The feedback will be used to review and develop a new guide for community health services based on the NSQHS Standards (2nd ed.). All responses will be de-identified and will not be attributed to you or your organisation.
