Quality and safety
Anaesthetists are proud of their role as leaders in patient safety
In keeping with its dedication to safety and quality of care for the community, ANZCA has established a Quality and Safety Committee to assist the ANZCA Council in actively advancing this mission.
The activities of the Quality and Safety Committee encompass all aspects of safety including data collection, anaesthesia mortality reviews, publication of information relevant to the safe practice of anaesthesia, assisting in the preparation of relevant guidelines based on best evidence and establishment of improved communication on topics of safety for all practitioners in anaesthesia, intensive care and pain medicine.
If you are aware of a safety issue in your hospital or are interested in quality and safety issues, please contact the Quality and Safety Officer.
