What is Clinical Governance?
Some people wonder what clinical governance is. Very simply put, it is managing the risk to patients, staff and the company.
There are several components that include;
Compliance is all about ensuring that you meet the required standards to operate a Caring, Responsive, Effective, Well-lead and Safe service.
Risk management is about minimising risks to patients by;
identifying what can and does go wrong during care
understanding the factors that influence this
learning lessons from any adverse events
ensuring action is taken to prevent reocurrence
putting systems in place to reduce risks
Clinical audit is a way that paramedics and event medical services measure the quality of the care they offer. It allows them to compare their performance against a standard to see how they are doing and identify opportunities for improvement. Changes can then be made, followed by further audits to see if these changes have been successful.
Training is more self-explanatory. It is vital that staff caring for patients have the knowledge and skills they need to do a good job. It is for that reason that they are given opportunities to update their skills to keep up with the latest developments as well as learn new skills.
