Framework Structure

EQuIP focuses on the issues considered to be of the greatest importance in providing safe, high-quality care. It has been developed in consultation with the healthcare industry both within Australia and internationally to address the clinical, support, and corporate functions of the organisation.

The program expresses the safety and quality goals that are common to different types of healthcare services. This means that although the evidence presented by different healthcare organisations for a criterion may vary, consideration of evidence can be made in the context of organisational structure, geography, patient type and services.

EQuIP7 is structured in a hierarchy, as follows:


• functions
• standards
• criteria
• elements
• guidelines

Meeting the ACHS International standards did not only recognise the healthcare system in place but also improved the harmony within our multi-racial organisation which ultimately, demonstrates to patients, the genuine feeling of the word care
