The Health Quality & Safety Commission is partnering again with the Australasian Institute of Clinical Governance (AICG) to sponsor places on the online AICG certificate in clinical governance course and the applied clinical governance workshop.
The course will empower organisations and their staff to provide better, safer patient care. It is a learning opportunity consisting of three comprehensive online learning modules (pre-work of approximately 21 hours of interactive learning) which are completed prior to attending an online workshop for each module.
The workshops take place via Zoom (eight contact hours per workshop) and will allow you to collaborate with health professionals to apply knowledge and skills through scenario-based case studies. The workshops complement the content in the online learning modules and align with components of clinical governance frameworks, adopted by your health organisation and/or your professional association. They also align with the New Zealand clinical governance framework outlined in Clinical Governance – guidance for health and disability providers.
