Further information on descriptions Description: Aims & Learning Objectives:

* Define the term governance and explore the history of the process
* Explore the ways in which the healthcare organisation develops and changes and what factors influence this process.
On completion of this unit students will be able to:
* Define the role of governance in a modern healthcare system
* Analyse the role of audit in the implementation of organisational change
* Develop the concept of healthcare as a "learning organisation".

Healthcare is provided by a wide range of highly skilled independent healthcare professionals, but of supreme importance is the maintenance of standards, not only within a healthcare unit, but also between units. This unit explores the issues of regulation, risk management and change in practice. This will include the following topics:
* Introduction to clinical governance
* Implications of clinical governance on HI and vice-versa
* Changing practice
* Organisational change
* Risk analysis
