Socially-determined governance

In thinking about clinical governance, we must also consider the range of factors that impact the safety and quality of care - whether intrinsic or extrinsic to the person. This will inform our approach to clinical governance in any given situation. Intrinsic factors might relate to the person themselves, such as a disability; extrinsic factors might relate to some external condition, such as homelessness and other aspects of a person’s social circumstances.

It is about transmitting voice, data, images and information rather than moving care recipients, health professionals or educators. It encompasses diagnosis, treatment, preventive (educational) and curative aspects of healthcare services and typically involves care recipient(s), care providers or educators in the provision of these services directed to the care recipient.’

Reporting is not just ‘red tape’ – it is an essential part of clinical governance. Why? Because unless we observe and assess care outcomes and experiences on an ongoing basis - which reporting enables – we cannot effectively identify risks, emerging risks, or areas for improvement.
