National Appraisal of Continuous Quality Improvement Initiatives in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Primary Health Care : Final report March 2013

There has been a substantial increase in interest in continuous quality improvement (CQI) efforts in the Australian primary health care arena over the past several years, including in the Indigenous primary health care sector. This interest has promoted increased financial incentives (e.g. to achieve accreditation and/or complete specific services such as health checks), attention to developing performance indicators, and moves to rationalise reporting requirements using web-based information technology.

This publication reports on project activity, including:

* review of current efforts and directions in light of recent and emerging national, regional and local CQI initiatives and major strategic directions relevant to Indigenous primary health care, and * identification of potential actions to progress further development of CQI initiatives over the next decade, taking into account strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and priorities.
