Quality Improvement Council (QIC) Accreditation
On a three-yearly cycle, Toora Women Inc. undergoes an accreditation review conducted by Quality Innovation Performance Limited* on behalf of the Quality Improvement Council (QIC).
We are committed to the principles of continuous quality improvement and embody these principles in all areas of the organisation. We have achieved continuous accreditation with the Quality Improvement Council since 2010.
A thorough review of our organisational systems against the Quality Improvement Council’s Health and Community Services Standards looks at multiple areas, including:
- Management systems
- Consumer and community engagement
- Diversity and cultural appropriateness
- Service delivery
- Stakeholder engagement
Our most recent accreditation review took place in April 2018 and all standards were met.
* Quality Innovation Performance Ltd was formed in 2012 as a result of a merger between Australia’s four major primary care accreditation bodies, including QIC.
