“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much” Helen Keller
In our complex and constantly evolving healthcare system, working with like-minded organisations can be the key to improving patient safety and quality care.
Health Quality & Safety Commission New Zealand
The Australasian Institute of Clinical Governance (AICG) and the Health Quality & Safety Commission of New Zealand (The Commission) are working together under a partnership arrangement to build workforce capability in quality and safety competencies in the New Zealand healthcare system.
Based on shared intentions and aspirations to empower individuals within the healthcare system to act to ensure safe and quality consumer-centred care for all, the partnership enables health professionals to access cross-Tasman, yet locally relevant, clinical governance professional development programs at sponsored or discounted rates and be involved in a like-minded clinical governance community with their Australian counterparts.
Collaborative activities to promote and grow the clinical governance community, greater sharing of cross Tasman knowledge and resources and the formation of a New Zealand AICG Facilitator Faculty will form part of the ongoing partnership.

The AICG Certificate course is suitable for all healthcare professionals and offers education on three key areas for improving safety and quality care; clinical governance, leadership and culture and collaboration.
