Community representation in hospital decision making: a literature review

Murray Z
Australian Health Review. 2015;39:323-328

It is well accepted that partnering with the community is an essential aspect of hospital quality improvement strategies. This article references the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards and places the responsibility for community involvement in planning for safety and quality with hospital senior executives and boards. The paper reports on an integrative literature review which explored articles about community representation in hospital governance. The analysis found limited published studies (33 articles were used for thematic analysis), but some key themes did emerge. Effectively utilising community representation in hospital decision making was challenging because of a number of factors. These included ambiguity around the role of consumer representatives; poor allocation of resources to support community engagement; organisational cultural issues and consumers feeling isolated or intimidated. The study suggested that establishing quality sub-committees to support boards are an important structure for involving community representation in governance around quality of care.
