Webinar: CORNERSTONE® Simplification

Practice news
27 September 2018

College members, practice teams and Primary Health Organisations have told us they want quality standards that support environments where more care can be delivered safely and equitably, using a framework that is simpler to implement and maintain.

The project team hosted a presentation of its proposals for simplifying CORNERSTONE®, featuring a live Q&A session with the team. They answered questions about quality and comments about the proposals to simplify CORNERSTONE®.

Topics covered:

  • Starting at the beginning – what is the purpose of a quality standard for general practice?
  • Key components of a quality standard
  • Evidence collection
  • Proposals for making it simpler
  • Q&A
