Education for clinical governance
British Journal of Clinical Governance
Article publication date: 1 March 2001
For the modernisation of the NHS and successful implementation of clinical governance there must be a new curriculum, with new educational goals for the education of clinicians, managers and consumers. Whilst many elements to that end have been introduced in recent years, a missing element is the study of the system of health care as a system, its properties and risks. The study of safety of and adverse outcomes from error in the “Quality of Australian health care”, highlighted not only preventable error in individual clinical decision and actions, but more importantly the hidden flaws, the latent errors within the system of health care that can lead to such errors. The study of system error in health care is greatly enhanced by the experience of comparable studies of safety in industry. These issues are explored in postgraduate vocational education and training. Perhaps they should be core curriculum for all undergraduate health profession and management education.
