Theories of regulation, governance and national standards for accreditation are reviewed to provide a foundation for organisational management requirements and clinical systems for effective, sustainable high-quality health care. Health care organisations need for effective understanding of and approaches to risk management, interprofessional practice and continuous quality improvement are reviewed. Analysis will investigate the effectiveness of clinical governance systems for assessing, monitoring, and improving management and clinical systems.
To operationalise these requirements, this unit reviews the overarching National Model Clinical Governance Framework (NMCGF) and National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards (NSQHSS) to determine appropriate systems for clinical governance, accountability and clinical performance and effectiveness. This involves the review and application of the NSQHSS Clinical Governance Standard.
