Safe and high quality health care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples: A perspective from the Kanyini Vascular Collaboration

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (the Commission) was established in 2006 by the Australian, State and Territory Governments to lead and coordinate national improvements in safety and quality. Its establishment followed the 2005 review into national arrangements for safety and quality of health care in Australia.

The focus of the Commission’s work over the last few years has been on priorities for the health system where current, complex problems and community concerns could benefit from national consideration and action. The Commission’s initial priority areas included healthcare rights, patient identification, medication safety, clinical handover, healthcare associated infection, open disclosure, accreditation and information strategies. The Commission’s work has expanded to include work on falls prevention, credentialling, clinical quality registries, recognition of and response to deteriorating patients, antimicrobial stewardship and a number of other areas.
