Robina Town Dental, your Gold Coast dentists, proudly belongs to a new age of accredited dental practices, meeting QIP quality standards of patient care and safety.
What Is QIP Accreditation?
Quality Innovative performance (QIP) is a non-for-profit health promotion charity with more than twenty years’ experience in accreditation and is committed to training and building services that make a difference. QIP are focused on adding value and enabling a positive environment. Accreditation is the independent recognition that an organisation or service, meets a set of well-defined criteria or standards.
The accreditation of private dental practices, such as Robina Town Dental, is based on the assimilation of a set of National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards into everyday practice culture, processes and patient safety. These standards harmonise regulatory requirements passed down by both the State and Federal governments. One of the main requirements that must be met is; the demonstration of clear and evidence-based patient benefits when visiting an accredited practice.
Accreditation provides the recognition that an organisation is; committed to quality care and safety, provides consumers with confidence, reduces risk, builds a more efficient organisation, provides quality performance and exerts assurance to patients.
What This Means For Patients?
When patients choose an accredited practice they can expect a reduction in clinical and general risks as well as experiencing peace of mind in knowing that all staff are educated and engaged in the implementation of dental systems and processes and that they are involved in the improvements of these processes within their practice.
National safety and Quality Health Service Standards for dentists were adopted by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care in 2011. The fulfilment of these standards means a dental practice has proven to be of the highest calibre in delivering superior patient care within Australia.
