HQSC Zero Seclusion Measures

This report is a replica of the Zero Seclusion Outcome Measures, developed by the Health Quality and Safety Commission (HQSC) in 2020.

The logic definition for the Zero Seclusion Outcome Measure is provided by HQSC and compares seclusion events and tāngata whai ora numbers to total inpatient numbers.

Please note: This logic is different to the one used by the KPI Programme seclusion data dashboards and therefore is not able to be cross checked.
