Clinical governance is the centrepiece of the Government's healthcare quality improvement strategy and therefore affects all nurses directly. A key report just published by the National Audit Office (NAO, 2003) shows that some trusts are failing to implement clinical governance properly and are falling down in important areas such as clinical audit and clinical risk management. Many nurses are involved in these areas and are in the position to influence change.
