SPP best practice modules – a foundational approach to good governance

Our SPP platform is well known for being a complete solution to standards compliance.  However, we also receive a lot of really positive feedback from users about how helpful they find our Towards Best Practice modules.

Many organisations use these modules to focus on good governance and continuous quality improvement across a range of operational areas of their business, separate from standards compliance.

Following requests from users, we’ve just released another Towards Best Practice module: Information Management and Privacy. This new module joins our other Towards Best Practice self-assessment modules, to help you address the important areas of:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Competence,
  • Continuous Improvement,
  • Finance,
  • Governance,
  • Human Resource Management,
  • Infection Management and Control,
  • Risk Management, and
  • Workplace Gender Equality.

These modules draw from the themes and indicators in a huge range of standards, to guide organisations through what best practice looks like in these key areas. The modules assist you to reflect on your current practices and processes, identify any areas for improvement and implement and track improvement steps over time.  

And what is really helpful, is that these self-assessments are all cross-mapped to the major mapped standards in our SPP platform. So, that means that as you complete the modules, you will simultaneously be making progress against the other major standards in SPP.

Where can I find these modules?

You can find all of these self-assessments in SPP on the Standards tab, under the ‘Towards Best Practice’ heading.

For more information on our Towards Best Practice self-assessments, refer to our previous blog post ‘What really is “best practice” and how do we achieve it?’.

DRC: Support Coordination

The DRC raised concerns about the current responsibilities of support coordinators, the conflict of interest risks, and the quality and consistency of the services being provided.

An Introduction to the Clinical Care Standards

The Clinical Care Standards address the expected level of care and outcomes when managing specific health conditions. The aim of the Standards is to set out a baseline standard of care and contribute to improved patient outcomes.

SPP has been a great resource for understanding and mapping Standards, preparing for Audits and also sourcing resources for policy development. I would recommend it to other organisations to complement their quality and compliance work. Information can be easily shared, and evidence gathered to support all work done.

I like the speed and ease of SPP, I love how it maps multiple standards. It’s so convenient, I couldn’t imagine the nightmare to do the work manually. The templates are great for gap analysis. SPP resource templates are great for implementing new policies in the office and for what we do day to day.

I have found the SPP system amazing. It provides a structured way to work through the standards and then provide a succinct report on the evidence being provided for a surveyor to view how we meet the standard. I used this in our recent accreditation survey, the auditor was very impressed, AND we are now accredited for ISO 9001. Thanks again. A great system.

We really like SPP. We use the resources in the Reading Room and couldn't have passed our accreditation with flying colours without SPP.

Everything is going well with SPP. It’s helped us through three lots of accreditation over the past nine months plus some internal auditing, so I’m very glad to have had it to assist us through the processes.
