The Health Quality & Safety Commission is carrying out a review of the National Reportable Events Policy 2012 (the policy). This discussion document:
This document is aimed at all health and disability organisations – including primary care, aged residential care, disability support services and secondary care.
After stakeholder engagement on this discussion document, we will release a new policy in early 2017.
Please note, this document goes into detail on all aspects of the existing policy. Providing feedback will take time but is important for three reasons: firstly, this is your opportunity to influence the direction of the policy; secondly, we will not be circulating the revised policy for consultation; and thirdly, we will not review the policy again for at least three years.
The timeframe for feedback runs from 10 November 2016 to 1 February 2017.
