Abstract

Introduction: Clinical Governance (CG) is a systematic approach to the maintaining and improving the quality of provided services for patients in the health system. With regards to the implementation of clinical governance in hospitals affiliated to Mashhad University of Medical Sciences and the role of matrons in ensuring quality care, little is known about the relationship between matrons’ participation in this plan and hospital success in clinical governance fulfillment. Materials and Methods:This cross-sectional, analytic-descriptive study was conducted to investigate the relationship between matrons’ knowledge, attitude, and performance in clinical governance and Mashhad hospitals' fulfillment of clinical governance. A researcher-made questionnaire was used for data collection on matrons’ knowledge, attitude, and performance. The standard checklist of the health ministry and observation were used to assess hospital clinical governance fulfillment. Data was analyzed at the hospital level by SPSS16. Results: The mean scores of matrons' knowledge, attitude, and performance were above average. Matrons' attitude towards clinical governance achieved the highest mark (4.46). There was no significant correlation between matrons' knowledge/attitude/performance and hospital scores for clinical governance fulfillment (P>0.05). Conclusion: While the levels of matrons' knowledge, attitude, and performance were satisfactory, there is still a need for improving matrons' knowledge. Absence of any statistically significant relationship between matrons' knowledge, attitude, performance and hospitals scores for clinical governance fulfillment may be due to the study small sample size.
