Kath Eady (presenting), Clinical Governance Leader of audit and compliance advisory Health Generation

Updated 17 May: This event is now full. To join the waitlist please email: editor@insideageing.com.au

The first Inside Ageing breakfast presentation and Q&A will take place next week in Sydney.

As defined by the Australian Council on Healthcare standards, Clinical Governance is “The system by which the governing body, managers and clinicians share responsibility and are accountable for consumer care, minimising risks to consumers and for continuously monitoring and improving the quality of clinical care”.

The clinical governance system of health and/or aged care organisation, therefore, needs to be conceptualised as a system within a system. Under this model – it is important to recognise that clinical governance is of equal importance to financial, risk and other business governance and decisions about other aspects of corporate governance can have a direct effect on the safety and quality of care, and decisions about clinical care can have a direct effect on other aspects of corporate governance.

Structuring incident management systems in aged care that contribute to accurately assessing harm, and therefore risk, not only provides the leadership team and governing bodies with an accurate assessment of risk (to individuals, to the organization) but also is robust enough to provide relevant information for compliance with mandatory reporting requirements.

The event will feature Kath Eady, Clinical Governance Leader of audit and compliance advisory Health Generation, who will be on hand to provide an overview of changes and obligations aged care providers and their boards have with respect to compliance.

The event will take place on Wednesday, May 25 at the Amora Jamison Hotel. It runs from 7.30 am to 9.30 am.

Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney – 11 Jamison St

The format of the event is a presentation, followed by a Q&A that will be moderated by Inside Ageing’s publisher Sean McKeown.

The complimentary breakfast briefing is open to Inside Ageing readers on a first-come basis and is limited to not more than one person per organisation.

To register your place email: editor@insideageing.com.au and include the name, company and email address of the person attending. (Questions for the presenter can be asked at the time of registration or on the day itself)

Updated 16 May: We’ve had a few questions already that will be added to the agenda for the Q&A. These include:

  • What is the difference between more traditional and contemporary clinical governance
  • What strategies work the best to engage boards in meaningful clinical governance conversation (rather than … it’s legislated low and it becomes a tick box on the agenda)

Inside Ageing will be running breakfast briefings in other capital cities throughout the year. Join our mailing list to receive updates about these.
