Improving safety and quality in PHC- Primary Care Collaboratives Study


Improving safety and quality in primary healthcare in Australia is of critical importance. There is a limited understanding of the organisational development for quality and safety taking place in Australian general practice, and the contribution of quality improvement Collaboratives to these developments. To improve system performance more knowledge is required on the ways in which Australian general practice innovates and the individual, organisational and systemic characteristics associated with quality and safety.

This report uses the clinical microsystems framework to examine the uptake, use and spread of the Australian Primary Care Collaboratives (APCC) program as the Australian Government's quality improvement program for general practice.
