AS/NZS 4187:2014 requirements
a) Complete a gap analysis to determine the current level of compliance and document the findings. Access to the standard and relevant references outlined in AS/NZ 4187:2014 are also necessary to ensure that the health service organisation's action plan is compre- hensive and addresses gaps within the organi- sation. Without access to these references the health service organisation cannot adequately assess gaps and can therefore not adequately plan for them.
b) Develop and document a detailed implementation plan using quality improvement principles specifying timeframes, milestones and deliverables to enable full implementation of AS/NZS 4187:2014 over a five year period, from December 2016.
c) Implement the plan and demonstrate progress toward implementation.
Action 3.16.1 of the NSQHS Standards:
