Countering the biggest risk of all: attempting to govern uncertainty in healthcare management – Good Governance Institute – May 2013

by Paul Moore   ISBN 978-1-907610-19-6

Extract from the introduction:

“I advance in this report a simple model for the governance of risk in healthcare settings, wherein it is proposed that effective assurance and resilience are dependent upon, or proportional to:
(i) clarity of organisational purpose and objectives;
(ii) effective treatment and monitoring of risk; and
(iii) robust accountability. Organisational culture and the behaviour of leaders also play a vital role in the development of good governance, as highlighted by Francis (2013a, 2013b, 2013c) and many others.

The Good Governance Institute (GGI) supports organisations to enhance their capacity to govern and control, but is increasingly asked what tools or techniques could be deployed to help boards protect their organisations against a broad set of high-consequence risks. This report enables the advancement of a new governance paradigm – a simplification, rationalisation and realignment of the basic elements of the clinical governance concept. Thus a new model is presented for countering the biggest risk of all – failing to make risk visible and failing to adapt to protect everything of value.”
