Palliative care performance indicators DSS
Identifying and definitional attributes
|Metadata item type:||Data Set Specification|
|DSS type:||Data Set Specification (DSS)|
This data set specification specifies information for collection about all administrative health regions, and whether they have developed strategic plans which incorporate specified palliative care elements. It also specifies information for collection about all government-funded palliative care agencies (service provider organisations), their approach to some aspects of service delivery, and their efforts in specific areas of quality improvement.
This information enables reporting of nationally-agreed palliative care performance indicators. Currently, there are four national performance indicators that have been agreed for reporting by the Palliative Care Intergovernmental Forum. These are:
1. The proportion of administrative health regions that have a written plan for palliative care that incorporates palliative care elements,
2. The proportion of palliative care agencies, within their setting of care, that routinely undertake or undergo formal assessment against the Palliative Care Australia standards,
3. The proportion of palliative care agencies, within their setting of care, that actively collect feedback from clients and staff (within the workforce) relating to services and service delivery,
4. The proportion of palliative care agencies, within their setting of care, that have formal working partnerships with other services provider(s) or organisation(s).
