CRANAplus Clinical Governance Guide
This Guide was developed by CRANAplus under an Australian Government Department of Health Grant with the prime objective to enhance governance, transparency and accountability in delivering safe, quality health care to remote and isolated communities.
The purpose of this Guide is to be a reference and resource for clinical service managers and clinicians so they will be able to discern their responsibilities in applying the recently introduced National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards to their workplace and in their practice. This Guide looks at the components and processes of clinical governance and quality improvement for remote and isolated health services. It is based on the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards, specifically Standard 1: Governance for Safety and Quality in Health Service Organisations with reference to Standard 2: Partnering with Consumers .
