Professional Standards of Remote Practice: Nursing and Midwifery
As part of the project ‘Pathway to Remote Practice’ the Professional Standards were reviewed in June 2014.
There are nine standards, each with a set of criteria.
The Professional Standards were developed to provide a benchmark for consistency and expected level of practice for nurses and midwives seeking employment or working in the remote and isolated health services.
These Professional Standards provide guidance and direction for nurses and midwives to practice competently, capably and professionally to meet the health needs of all people living in remote and isolated areas across Australia.
CRANAplus Clinical Governance Guide
This Guide was developed by CRANAplus under an Australian Government Department of Health Grant with the prime objective to enhance governance, transparency and accountability in delivering safe, quality health care to remote and isolated communities.
The purpose of this Guide is to be a reference and resource for clinical service managers and clinicians so they will be able to discern their responsibilities in applying the recently introduced National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards to their workplace and in their practice. This Guide looks at the components and processes of clinical governance and quality improvement for remote and isolated health services. It is based on the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards, specifically Standard 1: Governance for Safety and Quality in Health Service Organisations with reference to Standard 2: Partnering with Consumers .
Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care.
CRANAplus is pleased to endorse the following Standards;
