Accreditation 5th Edition Standards – What is different from the 4th?

Is your practice going through Accreditation this year or next? The new 5th edition standards are here and there are significant changes and updates that you will need to know about.

The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) has developed the 5th Edition Standards for general practices with the purpose of protecting patients from harm by improving the quality and safety of health services. The Standards also support general practices in identifying and addressing any gaps in their systems and processes.

CESPHN has two final 5th edition accreditation workshops for this year coming up:

  • Wednesday, 22 May – Prince of Wales Hospital
  • Another workshop will be held in August in the Canterbury region (registrations available soon)

Come and hear all the up to date information and tips for your upcoming accreditation from Fiona Kolokos, experienced surveyor for accreditation, President AAPM NSW/ACT, Practice Manager and Business Manager.
