Quality improvement

Our practice undertakes quality improvement activities to support the quality of care provided to our patients.

The Standards encourage quality improvement so that you can identify opportunities to make changes that will improve patient safety and care.

Quality improvement can be achieved in a number of ways, one of which is the regular review of your practice’s structures, systems and clinical care.

Improvement needs to be based on the practice’s own information and data, which can be collected in a variety of ways, including feedback from patients and the practice’s team, and audits of clinical data.

All members of the practice team need to have opportunities to contribute to the practice’s quality improvement activities.
