Interpretive guide to the RACGP Standards

Explaining the Standards in a meaningful way for Aboriginal community controlled health services

Standards for general practice 4th Edition interpretive guide
The purpose of the Interpretive guide is to explain the Standards in a meaningful way for Aboriginal community controlled health services by taking into account their context, culture and service delivery models.

This aims to make it easier for such services to understand the requirements of the Standards and how they apply to their everyday practice, both in order to prepare for accreditation and to identify opportunities for continuous quality improvement.
An interpretive guide, reflecting practices and language familiar to Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHS) staff, is also consistent with the values of self-determination and community control. In the long run, the guide will also help ACCHS to provide safe, high-quality medical care in a changing and complex health environment.

The Interpretive guide could also be used as a tool to support staff in a continuous process of learning and quality improvement.

The Interpretive guide is a companion document to the Standards for general practices.
