The launch of clinical governance in the late 1990s was
accompanied by a measure of excitement although, at that
stage, it was impossible to determine whether this was
really to be the start of a quality-driven revolution in
healthcare. Since its inception, much has been done to
turn the concepts behind clinical governance into
practical reality. Have these efforts been successful?
Many would argue that the jury is still out. The authors
have approached the topic from the diverse backgrounds
offered by urological surgery, general practice and
public health medicine. The result is a commentary on the
evolution of clinical governance that has the firm
anchors of practicality and realism. The book looks at
clinical governance from the perspective of the
practising clinician and explains what clinical
governance has to offer them. Doctors, nurses, therapists
and managers should all find something of interest and
practical value within these pages.
