The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality is looking for expression of interest

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care is getting together focus groups to gather clinician and patient/public views on the types of information they want to know about the safety and quality of their health services, and how this can be made easily accessible and useful to them.

Expression of interest

If you are interested in participating in one of the focus groups outlines below, please send an email to sqis@safetyandquality.gov.au as soon as possible.

Clinicians that are not residents in one of these capital cities but are interested in participating are encouraged to contact them if they are willing to travel in order to attend a focus group.
