What is clinical governance?
Clinical Governance in Western Australia is the mechanism by which hospitals are held accountable for:
- ensuring high standards of health care
- continuous improvement of service quality
- creating and maintaining an environment that supports clinical excellence
In September 2001, the Department of Health finalised a new model for Clinical Governance for development and implementation in hospitals and health services across the Western Australian public health system.
