Clinical Governance is a key area of compliance focus. It is particularly important for both Standard 3 and Standard 8 under the Aged Care Quality Standards.
Boards are seeking external input over the quality of information they receive from management and whether or not the information meets the standards.
Some Clinical Governance sub committees need to refresh their terms of reference, their agenda and their expectations on management. A review helps them determine how the committee will evolve and set new focus and objectives that assist the organisation meets its Vision, Purpose and the compliance requirements it must serve to consumers and the regulator.
