The United States Institute of Medicine once said that if home building were like healthcare, carpenters, electricians and plumbers would work from different blueprints, with very little co-ordination. I wonder what would they would make of separate quality and clinical governance frameworks? The danger of the ever increasing number of frameworks available is that their implementation, rather than point of care, dominates the agenda, and is seen as the achievement to be pursued. This can breed cognitive bias and false optimism that by having all these systems in place, care will automatically be good.
