Clinical governance explained

Australian Pharmacist - March 2021 - Supporting your practice

Although health care in Australia is regarded as amongst the safest in the world, preventable adverse events do occur. The purpose of clinical governance is to ensure systems are in place that will promote continuous improvement of services and high standards of care.

Pharmacists are leaders of medication safety programs and governance of medication safety committees as medication safety is integral to their role.
