The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (the Commission) leads and coordinates key improvements in safety and quality in health care across Australia.

In July 2021, the Commission commenced administering the Diagnostic Imaging Accreditation Scheme. The scheme accredits diagnostic imaging practices offering angiography, CT, fluoroscopy, MRI, mammography, nuclear medicine, orthopantomography, x-ray and ultrasound.

The accreditation model involves an accrediting agency undertaking a desktop audit every four years.

One of the Commission’s functions is developing national safety and quality standards and it is reviewing the Diagnostic Imaging Accreditation Scheme Standards. In this initial consultation, the Commission is seeking feedback on patient quality and safety issues and accreditation model options.

The Commission’s website has more information about the consultation.

This survey aims to:
  • Identify patient safety and quality issues in diagnostic imaging
  • Seek feedback on the accreditation model
Survey responses are mostly optional. Assuming all questions are answered, this survey takes up to 15 minutes to complete if you are not a diagnostic imaging provider or practitioner and 25 minutes if you are.

The survey closes on the 24 June 2022.
Please forward this survey link to others working in or with the sector.

Next steps
The information collected will be presented to the Diagnostic Imaging Accreditation Scheme Advisory Committee and used to inform development of standards for diagnostic imaging and the assessment of those standards.
