Project Summary:

This research seeks to identify the reliable evidence on the efficiency and sustainability of accreditation standards for Aboriginal Health Services and answer these key questions:

  1. Why do Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHS) operate under 4-7 Standards? 

  2. How are these numbers of Standards efficient and sustainable for the services and the sector?

“We are grateful the Lowitja Institute’s scholarship criteria funds community controlled organisations, enabling our Traditional Owner Company to enter the research space. Radarborg employs a Research Associate (Mr. Nkosinathi Sithole, a recently graduated PhD candidate) to support our research exploring the efficiency and sustainability of accreditation standards applied in the ACCHS sector.”
