QIC Health and Community Service Standards 7th Edition Review

The QIC Standards are reviewed on a regular basis in accordance with the QIC Standards Development and Review policy and the principles approved by the International Society of Health Care (ISQua), namely the Guidelines and Principles for the Development of Health and Social Care Standards (5th Edition). This is to ensure that the QIC Standards are developed and reviewed according to world best practice.

In 2020, the QIC Standards are to undergo a minor review, where all the standards are subject to review and possible change.

The process of the review includes the following steps:

  • Stakeholder engagement
  • Initial consultation phase
  • Develop draft standards
  • Consultation on draft standards
  • Refinement of standards
  • Pilot standards
  • Refinement of standards
  • Development of support tools
  • Transition plan development
  • Standards launch

QIP values the input of stakeholders in the development of the QIC Standards and will engage a variety of stakeholders throughout this process.

By February 2021 QIP will be sending out a survey to all community health services who are accredited against the QIC Standards for you to provide feedback on the current QIC Standards and the potential new areas within the QIC Standards as well as all QIC Assessors.
