"improving intensive care in Scotland"

Minimum Standards & Quality Indicators 2015

In 2012 the Scottish Intensive Care Society Quality Improvement Group (SICSQIG) produced a set of quality indicators for critical care in Scotland, emcompassing three areas – structure, process and outcome. These QIs are now incorporated into the SICSAG Annual Report.

With new developments occurring in the world of critical care, SICSAG has now reviewed, revised and expanded this work, which aims to be aligned to GPICS were possible.

QIs may be confused with minimum standards and for this reason SICSAG make clear distinctions on their definitions.

NHS quality indicators are defined by being person-centred, safe, effective, efficient, equitable and timely. The indicators developed by SICSAG meet those criteria.
