Development of EQuIP7The ACHS Evaluation and Quality Improvement Program (EQuIP) is the core ACHS developed program, and the basis of all EQuIP programs offered to members both locally and internationally.The ACHS undertakes a comprehensive EQuIP standards review and consultation process approximately every four years. This ensures the standards remain current, continue to reflect best practice, draw on evidence and are achievable and relevant to our member organisations.ACHS is Requesting Feedback on a Draft New Format of EQuIP7 StandardsFollowing suggestions for some changes to the EQuIP program, ACHS have developed an alternative format for the EQuIP Standards. ACHS is now seeking feedback from current members and EQuIP Assessors on the alternative format and content, in comparison to the current EQuIP6 format and content, including any suggestions for improvement.ACHS have requested that all EQuIP member organisations and EQuIP Assessors participate in an online consultation survey to highlight areas that may require improvement in the next edition of EQuIP.Surveys are available for Australian EQuIP Members, International EQuIP Members and EQuIP Assessors.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to have a link to the survey sent to you.ACHS is Calling for Volunteers to Participate in the Review of EQuIP6The current EQuIP review process requires participation by working groups to review drafts of Standards and provide expert advice on the content. Staff of Member organisations that work with EQuIP, as well as EQuIP Assessors, are well placed to provide this expert advice.Participation in the Working Groups is voluntary and will involve a couple of teleconferences, as well as reviewing and commenting on drafts of the standards via email.It is anticipated that Working Group members’ workload will be around eight hours per month up to May 2020. There will be further work following the completion of the Core Standards to review the other EQuIP programs, including day procedure centres, oral health, dialysis centres, aged care services and primary health care.While the work will be challenging and intellectually demanding, it will also be rewarding. All members of the Working Groups, and their organisation are acknowledged in the EQuIP Publications.Please contact email@example.com if you would like to be a member of the Working Groups.
