Clinical Governance is a framework through which we are accountable to assure ourselves, service users and regulators that we deliver safe and effective quality patient centred care within our services.
A unified team, consisting of senior clinicians will be responsible for meeting the local clinical governance requirements, for quality improvement and accountability.
All REMEO® services have a cross functional clinical governance board from our UK team, and supported by our global services and our clinical advisory board.
This unique model enables REMEO® to draw upon the experience of teams and individuals at a locally, global and NHS level.
At REMEO® treating our patients and their carers with compassion, dignity and respect really is important.
The key components of our clinical governance are:
Risk management is the identification, assessment, and prioritization of risks to minimize, monitor, and control the probability and/or impact of adverse events or to maximize the realization of opportunities.
REMEO® is continuously identifying, evaluating and taking action against potential risks. This is undertaken through our internal governance reviews and within our cross functional shared governance panel.
Patient and carer experience and involvement
Staffing and staff management
Our specialist recruitment and resourcing team ensure that all recruitment is undertaken and completed in line with current legislation and guidance policies. Staff are selected through a process which requires that they demonstrate that they have the appropriate values, attitudes, skills and behaviours to work with our patient group. Our senior Healthcare management team ensure that there is a regular review in the sufficiency of staff numbers and that they have the right skill mix and training compliance to deliver safe and high quality patient care.
At REMEO® we audit all of our services on a yearly basis to assess performance and outline development requirements.
Clinical audit is a quality improvement process that seeks to improve patient care and outcomes through systematic review of care against explicit criteria and the implementation of change. At REMEO® UK in association with our Global Healthcare team we undertake a yearly internal audit review of our services and local plans are set and agreed.
The main areas of focus are:
Innovative concepts for patient care
Medical and clinical excellence
Highly motivated and competent staff
Highest quality and safety standards
Education, training and professional development
REMEO® is continuously focused on achieving the highest quality in patient care and has developed a specific educational programme for all staff to become specialised in respiratory care for long term mechanically ventilated and weaning patients. This is undertaken through REMEO® academy and E learning. The programmes have been developed to meet the needs of the REMEO® professionals so they can acquire/ develop the appropriate respiratory skills to guarantee the highest patient quality of care.
REMEO® academy has been created to promote professional development and increase competency levels based on four main levels of training:
Evidence based care and effectiveness
All processes and protocols are developed and reviewed in line with evidence based best practice. Our Good Ventilation Practice, ‘REMEO® GVP’ is our unique concept that provides framework to achieve superior results in the delivery of clinical care.
REMEO® GVP supports evidenced based health care and improved health outcomes by reducing practice variation throughout REMEO® services.
