The Clinical Excellence Division works closely and collaboratively with Queensland’s Hospital and Health Services (HHSs) to improve the way our hospitals work, provide better and more timely care for patients and better workplaces for our staff. To work smarter in determining solutions, CED uses a catalogue of resources, service delivery models and service improvements.
Clinical Prioritisation Criteria
Clinical Prioritisation Criteria (CPC) are clinical decision support tools that will help ensure patients referred for public specialist outpatient services in Queensland are assessed in order of clinical urgency.
CPC will be used by both referring practitioners when referring into the Queensland public hospital system and Queensland public specialist outpatient services when determining how quickly the patient should be seen (urgency category).
