About QIP Accreditation
Accreditation is voluntary, profession-led and aims to promote continuous quality improvement.
The program is responsive to the needs and expectations of the dental profession. Also, this provides a sound evidence-based approach to accreditation by focusing on the first six NSQHS Standards that are applicable to dentistry.
During the accreditation cycle practices undertake a process of continuous quality improvement and submit a mid-cycle report to QIP. This mid-cycle report supports practices to demonstrate ongoing compliance with the NSQHS Standards.
Accreditation assists dental practices to:
- Build a culture of quality and patient safety
- Reduce clinical and general risks
- Educate and engage staff in quality improvement processes and systems
- Establish competitive advantage over non-accredited dental practices, and promote the quality and safety of services to both patients and the community.
