Policy governance

This Policy Governance Framework defines the responsibilities and approach to the development, management and application of system-wide policy across our public health system.

The Framework incorporates 20 Policy Domains which are used to categorise SA Health policies and guidelines by topic area.

The Policies within each Policy Domain must be complied with and implemented as a part of ongoing operations.

All SA Health policies that are overdue for review remain in force and continue to be applicable until they are rescinded or updated, irrespective of their scheduled review date.
