The global health care (leading quality and safety) nursing program
aims to advance knowledge of clinical governance and the processes
involved in achieving continuous quality improvement in global health
care. The curriculum content is informed by the World Health
Organisation Patient Safety Curriculum and the Australian National
Safety and Quality Health Service Standards.

analyse the complexity of the issues associated with the principles of
quality and safety in health care from Australian and international
perspectives. The curriculum includes the nature of healthcare error
including quality indicators, the role of effective communication, and
the methods of error detection and monitoring.
You will develop an understanding of clinical governance,
accountability and systems management, and have considered methods for
improving health care such as applying clinical research into practice,
clinical practice guidelines and clinical practice improvement.
