Health Quality and Safety Commission - Capability Framework

The HQSC is seeking feedback on a draft discussion paper describing a framework that articulates specific expectations for quality and safety, for all health care workers at every level of the health system, including capabilities for consumers.

The framework is intended to be used as a guide by organisations to consider and reflect on their internal capability and capacity for quality improvement and patient safety and identify potential gaps. It will allow organisations to either develop internal education and training programmes to close these gaps or seek external programmes.

The draft framework can be accessed via the following link:
