The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) has released the draft of the RACGP Standards for general practice residential aged care (1st edition) (Standards for GPRAC) for public consultation.

The RACGP has a 27 year history in the development of standards for use in a primary healthcare setting. All of the RACGP’s standards form a foundational benchmark for quality and safety in Australian general practice.

To ensure the Standards for GPRAC are fit for purpose, improve access and enhance care to residents, we invite interested Members, individuals and organisations to review the draft and provide feedback.

The draft has been developed by the RACGP Working group - Standards for general practice residential aged care and the RACGP Expert Committee - Standards for General Practices and has been informed by:

  • available national and international evidence
  • comparable national and international standards.

The consultation phase will run from 8 October 2019 and conclude on 5 November 2019. The RACGP welcomes feedback from Members and stakeholders.
