Description:
The National Standards for Safer Better Healthcare were launched by the Minister for Health in June 2012. The Standards describe a vision for high quality, safe healthcare and provide a framework for services to organise, manage and deliver safe and sustainable healthcare. They set out the key principles of quality and safety that should be applied in any healthcare setting. The Quality and Patient Safety (QPS) Directorate, HSE, established the Safer Better Healthcare – Acute Care Collaborative to develop a consistent quality improvement approach to supporting acute service providers in implementing the National Standards. The Collaborative facilitated the gathering together of existing knowledge and expertise on accreditation, self assessments and implementation of standards within the acute healthcare setting. Membership of the Acute Care Collaborative included representation from frontline services, voluntary hospitals, independent hospitals and Regional Quality and Patient Safety teams. A key deliverable of the Acute Care Collaborative was the development of an assessment tool to support acute services in assessing against the National Standards and developing progressive improvement plans.
