Abstract

Clinical governance encompasses quality assurance, measures to ensure self-development, comparing standards and learning from errors and suboptimal results. The management of risk poses a significant challenge in itself, as to reduce it to zero would require practice coming to a standstill. The implementation of structures to provide a safe environment for the patients we treat remains one of the greatest challenges faced by healthcare organisations today. Additionally, the potential litigious outcome provides an added conspicuous incentive to not only continuously review and address adverse events but to ensure that our patients remain free from harm.
