Quality Care

About this committee

The RACGP Expert Committee – Quality Care (REC– QC) is responsible for advising on matters of clinical significance to the RACGP and general practice. The REC-QC strives to champion and facilitate high standard Australian general practice, and position general practice to make a substantial contribution to the emerging quality initiatives within the Australian health system.

The roles of the REC-QC are to:

  • maintain high quality, evidence based tools and resources to improve delivery of care in general practice and to support preventive care,
  • provide advice and direction on matters of clinical excellence,
  • provide input into guidelines, position papers and RACGP responses to submissions related to clinical issues or delivery of quality care,
  • ensure the Committee represents key portfolios in the areas of: preventive health; multimorbidity and chronic disease management; safety, quality, evaluation and monitoring; aged and palliative care; mental health, and
  • assist in sourcing of GPs to represent the RACGP on external committees.

Strategic directions

The RACGP has seven main strategic objectives. These are leadership of the profession, clinical principles for the profession, general practice lifelong learning, building modern practice through technology, member engagement and academic leadership.
