A review of the history of compliance notices provides some interesting but not unexpected data.
Of all the outcomes failed these are the most frequently found non-compliant. The most important to note is outcome 1.6 Human resource management. We do not focus enough resources and training, planning and understanding into the skill sets required to provide appropriate care. This is identified in the failure of the other critical clinical outcomes of 2.4 Clinical care, 2.7 Medication management, 2.13 Behaviour management and lastly and by default, 1.8 information systems.
