Summary The Clinical Support Systems Program (CSSP) includes the management of clinical practice using clinical and consumer pathways, outcome and performance indicators, clinical measurement and review in a continuous improvement cycle using the best available extant evidence. The Royal Australasian College of Physicians is testing the CSSP model through four consortia around Australia. There are 17 project sites in three States. The funded projects address major clinical problems including congestive heart failure and acute coronary syndromes, acute stroke management, and colorectal cancer care. There is some early evidence of the CSSP influencing change in areas beyond the bounds of the project settings and the College has developed a plan to promote wider adoption of best practice. This approach recognises the College’s role in providing Fellows with the practical tools of quality improvement, the means to collect data and compare their practice to other clinicians, while traversing the appropriate educational framework.
