The Australasian Institute of Clinical Governance (AICG) is a division of Health Education Australia Limited (HEAL), a not-for-profit organisation that has been synonymous with quality health education for over 100 years.
The AICG was formed in direct response to an identified need for healthcare professionals to strengthen their skills in clinical governance to reduce the occurrence of adverse events, and is now recognised as the leading cross-sector, interprofessional clinical governance education provider across Australia and New Zealand.
The AICG firmly believes that by building the clinical governance capability of our health and care workforce we can improve patient safety and quality care and deliver better health outcomes for the community.
