Clinical Governance

Ambulance Tasmania's mission is to provide excellence in ambulance and health transport care.

Building a high quality, safe health care system that is responsible for the best patient outcomes possible, is our number one priority. To support all staff in achieving that aim, a contemporary Clinical Governance Framework has been developed.

The focus on Clinical Governance for health providers is an important aspect of patient care. Our Clinical Governance Framework brings together clinical practice, clinical measures and effectiveness, review, audit, education and consumer feedback to implement a standardised, evidenced-based approach to interventions.

The Clinical Governance Framework provides the over-arching principles to guide the organisation through a continuous feedback loop, and supports the individual to take responsibility for their own behaviours and actions. 

We encourage all staff to use the Clinical Governance principles to improve their practice, and become familiar with the relevant documents and policies to ensure AT is delivering high quality, safe care to our communities.
