Victoria has three ministerial appointed consultative councils that report on highly specialised areas of healthcare in order to reduce mortality and morbidity through education, system improvement and reform.
- 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.
Safer Care Victoria supports the councils through secretariat services including managing sensitive and confidential data, publishing reports and liaising with stakeholders such as health services and the Coroners Court of Victoria.
