New quality improvement tools for sepsis

The ACSQHC (the Commission) has released two new quality improvement tools to help healthcare services implement the Sepsis Clinical Care Standard launched earlier this year.

  • The Sepsis Clinical Care Standard Self-Assessment Tool allows services to assess their progress in implementing key elements of the standard. This tool also enables services to develop and monitor quality improvement plans.
  • The Sepsis Clinical Care Standard Indicator Monitoring Tool is a data repository, analysis and reporting tool for the standard indicators. Services can use the tool to collect and audit individual patient data, examine results, and identify improvement targets. It is accompanied by a quick reference guide.

These tools and a range of other implementation resources for clinicians and healthcare services are available on the Commission’s website.
