The 4th edition of the RACGP Standards for general practices (the Standards) was released in October 2010. The RACGP is now developing the 5th edition Standards, which will be launched in October 2017.
The second draft of the 5th edition Standards is now available for review (see below). The second draft has been developed by the RACGP Expert Committee - Standards for General Practices and has been informed by:
- stakeholder feedback from two consultation phases
- results from the small scale pilot
- available evidence
- comparable national and international primary care standards.
The next consultation phase is set to run from 6 June 2016 to 30 September 2016. The RACGP welcomes feedback from stakeholders on the second draft of the 5th edition Standards and the Resource Guide for the RACGP Standards for general practices (the Resource Guide).
During this consultation phase, the draft Standards will also be piloted in 100 practices across Australia.
