Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper presents a literature review of clinical governance and its impact upon dental health care in the UK. Whilst the value of clinical governance is recognised, the findings illustrate that the concept of clinical governance remains challenging to dental care practitioners, illustrated by lack of knowledge and confidence in its application and evaluation. The study also identifies a distinct paucity of research concerning impact and makes recommendations to enhance clinical governance in practice.
