The RACGP defines clinical governance as a framework through which clinicians and health service managers are jointly responsible and accountable for patient safety and quality care.4

Within this framework are embedded the principles of recognisably high standards of care, transparent responsibility and accountability for maintaining those standards, and a constant dynamic of quality improvement.5
