The Health Quality & Safety Commission (the Commission) is a crown entity working with clinicians, providers and consumers to lead and coordinate the improvement of the quality and safety of health and disability support services.
In March 2019 the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) contracted the Commission to provide support to the National Trauma Network (the Network) by:
- building quality improvement knowledge and skills across the trauma system, to create a system that learns and evolves
- delivering targeted quality improvement projects focused on specific areas, such as critical haemorrhage, trauma rehabilitation and severe traumatic brain injury
- providing analytical and research support so the Network’s work is data driven and based on evidence
- delivering a patient reported outcome measures project to enable the Network to understand how injured people recover and ensure that their recovery is better supported.
