The implementation science and organisational reliability fields of knowledge are drawn upon to illuminate safety and quality centrality to clinical governance. This knowledge is used to investigate how to achieve effective performance and monitoring systems that support and promote clinical safety and quality, accountability and transparency within organisations for patients, the workforce and community.
To operationalise these requirements, this unit investigates the application of NSQHS Preventing and Controlling Healthcare-Associated Infections and Medication Safety Standards. Their necessity and integration with other standards in the NSQHS are also reviewed.
