Australia has been moving towards a nationally consistent approach to the safety and quality of health care since 2006 with the establishment of the Quality and Safety Commission.

The 2nd Edition of the National Safety and Quality Health Standards, brought into effect in January 2019, addresses gaps identified in the first edition, including mental health and cognitive impairment, health literacy, end-of-life care, as well as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health.

The 2nd Edition release also updated the evidence for actions, consolidated and streamlined standards and actions to make them clearer and easier to implement, and reduced duplication.

We’ve compiled some of the latest statistics around safety and quality in healthcare, as stated by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care in their 2019 report.
