In light of the recent Duckett review, Targeting Zero, the review of hospital safety and quality assurance in Victoria, there is a growing expectation that consumers will be involved as members of boards and clinical governance committees. But clinical governance is a world of its own, and there is much to be learned before becoming an effective consumer representative or board member who is knowledgeable and able to contribute to improving the health and safety of health services for Victorians.
Health Issues Centre is offering a half-day workshop on clinical goverance for consumers, community leaders and health services board members.
Who is this workshop for: consumers, community leaders and health services board members.
What is covered: definitions and principles of clinical governance, terms used in clinical governance, the elements of a clinical governance framework, main benefits of and barriers to clinical goverance, the role of boards of health services in clinical governance, and some of the key questions to ask as a consumer representative involved in clinical governance committees or health services boards.
Ideally, health or community services should cover the costs associated with this training course.
This training is also available for groups of more than 10 participants at your health and community service location. The group session is costed as a group fee plus travel costs.
Morning tea will be provided.
