The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (the Commission) has developed a consultation paper for National Safety and Quality Mental Health (NSQMH) Standards for Community Managed Organisations (CMOs). This is the first step in the development of NSQMH Standards for CMOs, which will help provide safety and quality assurance for community mental health service users, and best practice guidance for service providers and developers. The consultation paper is now available on the Commission’s website. You are invited to provide your feedback via an online survey, written submission or participation in a focus group.

Help drive forward a renewed First Nations health equity reform agenda
Under the leadership of the Chief Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Officer and Deputy Director-General, Queensland Health in partnership with QAIHC is driving a renewed First Nations health equity reform agenda to address the legacy of institutional racism, strengthen relationships with First Nations peoples and implement new approaches to eliminate the avoidable, unjust and unfair health inequities experienced by many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The voices, leadership and lived experiences of First Nations peoples are driving this agenda.
A discussion paper—Making Tracks towards health equity with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples: working together to achieve life expectancy parity by 2031 (PDF 9912 kB)—was released on 17 March 2021. The discussion paper is a call to action to generate wider discussions, mobilise effort and build collective support across the health system and society more broadly for a renewed and focused agenda centred on First Nations health equity.
Have your say on this health equity agenda by attending a regional forum, submitting your written feedback or completing a survey. Read more
