5th edition Standards development webinar

5th edition Standards development webinar

Broadcast date: 30 June 2016

The RACGP is currently developing the next edition of the RACGP Standards for general practices (the Standards). he 5th edition of the Standards builds on the concepts in the 4th edition Standards. The 5th edition Standards will be released in October 2017. 

One of the largest changes between the 4th and 5th editions of the Standards is the move from process-focused to outcome-focused Indicators. Outcome-focused means that the Indicator focuses on the outcome or the intent rather than the process required to meet that intent. This approach gives practices greater scope to set up systems and processes that reflect the working arrangements in their practice and will be easier to maintain after their accreditation assessment. This change in the Standards will mean a change in how Indicators are assessed by the accreditation surveyors. 

The second draft 5th edition Standards is currently open for consultation. As part of the consultation for the second draft, the RACGP is undertaking a large scale pilot involving 100 practices Australia wide. Piloting the draft Standards will test the real-world application of the 5th edition in practice and will allow the RACGP to gain feedback on the new outcome-focused Indicators. 

To provide further information about the changes between the 4th and 5th edition Standards, new Indicators and the piloting processes the RACGP recently ran some webinars. These webinars were attended by practices and surveyors who are involved in the pilots, and are now available for anyone to view below
