The IQILS standards are a set of professional standards which are based on the PAS (publicly available specification). This is a nationally recognised standard owned and published by the British Standards Institute (BSI). It was created as a framework for clinical service accreditation schemes.
The PAS framework is underpinned by liver-specific criteria and evidence requirements, which were drawn from the liver quest framework.
- The standards cover all aspects of a clinical service and are organised into seven domains:
- Leadership, strategy and management
- Operational delivery of the clinical service
- Systems to support clinical service delivery
- Person Centred Treatment and/or Care
- Risk and safety
- Clinical effectiveness
- Staffing a clinical service
To support the achievement of the standards for liver services the standards have been broken down into distinct levels so that there are stepping stones for services to work through.
Level 1 of the standards are available here.
Level 2 of the standards are available here.
