UnitingCare has a strong and effective integrated clinical governance framework. We have developed reliable systems and processes within our hospitals and corporate structures regarding risk assessment, reporting, incident management, accountability, monitoring and evaluation.
We involve our people – doctors, nurses, allied health practitioners and staff – in developing a culture focused on safe care, quality outcomes, person-centred care and excellence in performance.
UnitingCare committees encourage and seek clinician involvement and leadership. Each hospital has its own Medical Advisory Committee and Quality and Safety Committee(s) that actively monitor their individual quality and safety outcomes and patient experience data. This data informs and drives the Quality programs and initiatives.
Our local systems are supported by UnitingCare's systems, committees and reporting structures that monitor progress on safety and quality goals and standards.
