ACSA accredited departments


Accredited sites have undergone a robust and vigorous onsite review visit.  The ACSA review team consists of:

  • Clinical Reviewers
  • Lay Reviewers
  • A member of the ACSA team

On the visit, a variety of standards are assessed and the evidence for each standard is triangulated across a range of forums in the anaesthetic department to provide a fair, objective and measurable review process.
