Quality improvement in primary health care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people

Recently, the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO) released the National Continuous Quality Improvement Framework for Primary Care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people 2018. The document is intended to be used across the whole of primary care.

The National Framework is designed to provide practical support for all primary healthcare organisations in their efforts to ensure that the health care they provide is high quality, safe, effective, responsive and culturally respectful. It is relevant to Aboriginal health services and private general practices, NACCHO affiliates and Primary Health Networks, national and state/territory governments. It provides guidance for clinicians, board members, practice owners and health promotion, administrative and management staff.
