This Clinical Education Risk Management Framework describes a common process for how risks are identified, assessed, treated, reported, monitored, and reviewed in Clinical Education in the Faculty of MDHS.
Goals of the Framework
The Framework’s goals are ensuring the quality of students' training and readiness to practice, guaranteeing the safety of everyone involved in clinical placements, maintaining the sustainability and excellence of MDHS education courses and programs, and ensuring compliance with all internal and external reporting requirements.
Benefits of the Framework
By providing a structured approach to managing uncertainty and enhancing strategic thinking, the MDHS Clinical Education Risk Management Framework benefits the entire MDHS community.
In adopting an effective risk management approach, the Faculty can maintain the sustainability, quality and safety of clinical education delivered.
Ultimately, this strongly positions students for graduate employment in their chosen profession and enables them to provide high-quality healthcare to the Australian community and beyond.
Reporting Risks & Incidents
Identifying and recording risks or incidents creates awareness of an issue that has the potential to cause harm or impact the objectives of clinical education.
Monitoring and review of risks in Clinical Education in MDHS are undertaken by both individuals and committees through the governance process.
Supporting Students in Clinical Placements
Supporting students in clinical placements involves providing a structured and positive learning environment that encourages growth, development, and learning.
