LASA Congress 2020 – Governance on the Ground

Governance matters are often seen as an imposition, resulting in a rudimentary collation and analysis so they can return to their real work. Understanding what information is required and how to capture it is just the first step.

Clinicians and staff at the front line want to do a good job, a job that centres on care and service provision. Good governance recognises that the health system is a dynamic, adaptive collection of interrelated and interdependent components, including people and processes, with a common purpose or aim.

Creating a program that describes not only what is required, but more critically, how to analyse, understand and use the information to enable sound clinical governance is essential.

In this presentation Judi Coombe will provide guidance for organisations to consider and assess their current Clinical Governance Framework and determine the effectiveness in the contribution to sound organisational governance.
