‘Policies and procedures’ is the first component of Patient Safety and Quality Systems, as outlined by the Australian Government’s National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards  (NSQHSS).

Patient Safety and Quality Systems

Purpose: Patient safety and quality systems are in place within governance processes to allow organisations to advance the safety and the quality of patients’ care (Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care 2017).

Policy v Procedure: What’s the Difference?

Policies and procedures are the first things an organisation should establish in order to operate effectively. Policies are rules, guidelines and principles that communicate an organisation’s culture, values and philosophies (Kenyon 2018; Business Dictionary n.d.). 

Policies include:

  • Employee entitlement and what they can expect from the organisation; 
  • What the organisation expects from their employees;
  • What consumers and the community can expect from the organisation.
