Read the framework

When health professionals work in partnership with consumers and carers we achieve better patient outcomes. Which is why Safer Care Victoria has developed the new Partnering in healthcare framework.

Our framework will help health services work with consumers and respond to their needs and expectations. Designed to support consumer participation in healthcare, our framework was co-produced with consumers, health professionals and community members during 2018.

The framework encourages health services to involve consumers in the delivery of care that is safe, person and family centred, equitable and clinically effective.
