An Introduction to Clinical Governance and Patient Safety

David James

Oxford University Press

There is currently no universal model of clinical governance (CG) at service delivery level. This chapter discusses a simple approach that allows the concepts of CG to be tailored to various clinical settings. The cycle is designed to ensure clinical services provide care to an acceptable quality. It seeks to compare current practices to reference standards, emphasizing that CG activities are undertaken iteratively, with considerable overlap of each component of the cycle, which may be entered at any point.
