AMA Submission: RACGP’s Draft 5th Edition Standards for General Practice
The AMA has provided a submission to the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) on its Second Draft of the Standards for General Practices, 5th edition. The 5th edition Standards are due to be released in October 2017.
The AMA provided a submission on the first draft of the Standards earlier this year, and, for the most part, the comments and suggestions made in that submission were incorporated into the second draft.
In this latest submission, the AMA has focused its response on ensuring the revised Standards are practical, achievable and provide direction for Australia’s general practices in the provision of safe and quality care. The submission comments on a number of criteria covering a wide range of topics.
