What is ‘Systems Thinking’, and how is it relevant to clinical governance?
What is ‘Systems Thinking’, and how is it relevant to clinical governance?

In any ‘system’ – essentially, a collective of different moving parts – we must understand how the parts affect the whole. There are many ways to define ‘Systems Thinking’ – a concept that was first coined by Barry Richmond:

“As interdependency increases, we must learn in a new way. It’s not good enough simply to get smarter and smarter about our particular “piece of the rock.” We must have a common language and framework for sharing our specialized knowledge, expertise and experience with “local experts” from other parts of the web… In short, interdependency demands Systems Thinking. Without it, the evolutionary trajectory that we’ve been following since we emerged from the primordial soup will become increasingly less viable.”

Integrating primary care

Integrated care addresses the problem of care fragmentation, and instead supports continuity.  It is person-centred because it enhances the patient experience through improved coordination of care.  Integrated care has been broadly described as an ‘organising principle for care delivery with the aim of achieving improved patient care through better coordination of services provided’ – hence the need for systems thinking.
