CIMS (Client Incident Management System)

 

The Quality of Care process of investigating alleged harm whilst in care has now been replaced with the new Client Incident Management System (CIMS) and was implemented as of the 15 January 2018.

Whilst the new CIMS processes and procedures may differ, the focus remains the same; that is, the safety and wellbeing of the child is paramount.

One of the fundamental differences of the new CIMS however, is the commitment by the DHHS that this new process ensures a stronger focus on the most serious client incidents, as well as focusing on the impact on the client (as opposed to the incident itself).

 

For more information please look at the CIMS Fact Sheet for Carers and the DHHS website.
