There have been a number of changes made since version 1 of the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards with version 2 released in November 2017. Margaret Banks will share her knowledge and experience in the development of the version 2 of the Standards to discuss the major differences between the previous version, what this means for organisations undergoing accreditation and how the NSQHS Standards second edition have improved to support the quality of care in Australia.
Margaret Banks has worked as the Senior Program Director with the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care since July 2006. In this time she has worked with stakeholders, consumers and jurisdictions on the development of National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards and a program of systematic accreditation reform for the implementation of the NSQHS Standards. Most recently, the focus has been on the development of version 2 of the NSQHS Standards.
Prior to this appointment Margaret worked with the Department of Health and Ageing, the Australian Health Workforce Advisory Committee and the NSW Health Department on matters relating to workforce. She has also worked as a physiotherapist for 9 years in both Australia and Papua New Guinea, and held an Adjunct Professorship with the University of Technology Sydney.
