What do past participants say?
Michael – a Consumer Representative at a health service – said that the “workshop was absolutely fantastic to attend. It’s pretty easy to get lost in all of the medical terms, but I was able to go through the language used in clinical governance and really understand what they mean. Because I attended this workshop, I have a personal glossary of terms that I can refer to whenever I need it. It provided the fundamentals of what good clinical governance should look like.”
