Discontinued in 2002. The Journal of Clinical Governance aims to inform people involved or interested in clinical governance about effective methods and innovations, and to promote discussion of topical issues. The journal is particularly concerned with clinical governance in primary care and at the interfaces between primary and secondary, and primary and social, care. Clinical governance is a relatively new concept, but it incorporates a wide range of activities that have the common aim of improving or maintaining the quality of care. Audit, risk management, lifelong learning, continuous quality improvement, management of poor performance and procedure to protect patient confidentiality are but a few of the components of clinical governance. The journal is concerned with all aspects of clinical governance. Clinical governance constitutes a major challenge to people working in healthcare, and is particularly challenging to those in primary care. The most effective approaches and techniques applicable to primary care, and care across the interfaces, are often different to those appropriate to secondary care. The Journal of Clinical Governance seeks articles of the highest quality in the field of clinical governance or audit. They include reviews and discussions, as well as research based on quantitative and qualitative methods. Discontinued - now Quality in Primary Care.
