Safer Care Victoria supports Victoria's three ministerial appointed consultative councils that report on highly specialised areas of healthcare to help reduce mortality and morbidity.
- collect, analyse and report data relating to mortality and morbidity cases
- identify avoidable or contributing factors
- provide advice and recommendations to inform priority areas for research, quality and safety improvements and policy development.
The three councils work closely together and the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 permits confidential information to be shared between them.
Safer Care Victoria also supports a number of independent councils that provide advice to the Department of Health and Human Services and/or the Minister for Health.
