    Health Consumers Tasmania is assisting the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care to deliver this consultation session about setting standards for Primary Health Care.

    The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care is developing standards for primary health care providers other than General Practices. This includes community nursing, dentist, pharmacist, chiropractors and psychologists to name a few.

    Topics for debate include whether accreditation is needed, and what information should services have to provide to consumers. Health consumers and community advocates are invited to the two consultation sessions for Tasmania.

    RSVP to Kate Griggs at zephyr.cruisin@yahoo.com.au. Further information about the new standards is available at www.safetyandquality.gov.au/our-work/primary-health-care/.
