Changes to Australian Health Service Safety and Quality Accreditation (AHSSQA) Scheme

16 August 2018

Following a comprehensive review of the Australian Health Service Safety and Quality Accreditation (AHSSQA) Scheme, the Commission has proposed a series of changes to improve the reliability and rigour of accreditation processes.

The Commission has developed a series of fact sheets to communicate the key changes being made to the AHSSQA Scheme to health service organisations and accrediting agencies. The fact sheets were developed in consultation with stakeholders from the public and private sector, accrediting agencies and consumers.

You can read and download the fact sheets now on the NSQHS Standards website.
