< 1 Min Read

Please be aware that the MyRACMA system will be unavailable on Tuesday 2nd April at 07:00 (AEDT) as we will be performing scheduled maintenance. We anticipate a downtime of 30 minutes.

RACMA launched its new podcast series “Safeguarding Healthcare – the essentials of Clinical Governance at RACMA 2023 in Auckland today.

The podcasts are part of a program of work, which was endorsed by the board, aiming to position RACMA as the national authority on clinical governance practice. This work was initiated following a meeting with Ahpra, the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (ACSQHC) and the Clinical Excellence Commission where RACMA was invited to lead the development of practical tools and training in clinical governance.

The podcasts are hosted by RACMA Lead Fellow Clinical Governance Dr David Rankin and feature a number of senior RACMA Fellows.

The podcasts can also be found at:

The first podcast features RACMA President Dr Helen Parsons CSC, titled “Navigating the nightmare of wrong site surgery”.

The Clinical Governance program of work will also involve:

  • Defining the components of clinical governance
  • Creating a clinical governance self-assessment tool which can be used to determine the maturity of clinical governance in Australian hospitals
  • Determining current perception amongst clinicians of clinical leadership
  • Developing and delivering an integrated series of training programs for various target audiences involved in healthcare governance, leadership and delivery
  • Creating a repository of tools to deliver effective clinical governance
