Clinical Governance and Audit Training

  • 6 CPD Hours Apex Building, Blackthorn Road Sandyford Business District D18 (map)

Healthcare organisations, whether large acute hospitals, community or primary care centres are under increasing pressure to deliver safe, high quality effective patient care. Clinical Governance provides a theoretical framework for understanding the requirements for implementing systems to ensure quality service. The centres are also required to perform one clinical audit per year under the Clinical Governance Framework. This is the principle method used to monitor clinical quality and provide a method for identifying opportunities for improvement. 

This one day CPD course will teach you firstly what you need to know regarding clinical governance. We will then look at the key challenges often faced in the process, and we will clarify your own role in the process. We will examine the audit procedure in detail, and we will show how to collect and analyse the data found, and will give great insights on audit report writing and the most effective way to present your findings. All attendees will get a chance to engage in an informative Q & A session, and will receive a highly informative course pack, and leave with 5 structured CPD Points.
