Clinical equipoise looks at the balance through the scientific community, whereas therapeutic equipoise looks at the balance through the judgment of a single physician (Weiger et al., 2013, 93). In this paper, it will be proven that equipoise, specifically clinical equipoise, is valid through the comparisons of the different types of equipoise and the focus on trust relationships. However, it will be made evident that clinical equipoise fails to acknowledge the patient’s autonomy because of the high focus on the medical research aspect. For research to be valid, it must consider beneficence. Brody and Miller believe that researchers must respect autonomy for the research to be ethical.
For this assessment, I will be reflecting on what clinical governance looks like in my workplace, with a critique of the framework used within the organization. During the reflection I will discuss what pillars and principles were found, while describing my fellow team members’ understanding of clinical governance and how it is reflected in their practice. Finding the clinical governance framework for my workplace was challenging and time consuming without computer access in place of hard copy policy and procedure manuals. I found clinical governance summerised through the manuals, ensuring compliance of the 44 accreditation standards (Australian Aged Care Quality Agency, 2014) but as Knight, Kenny and Endacott (2015) discuss, while the concept is accepted, there is a gap between theory and practice, which is visual where I work. Pillars and principles such as risk management, efficiency, effectiveness, patient centric and equity are seen throughout the policies, and to analyse more specifically, clinical governance is articulated under categories, consisting of “education and training, clinical audit, clinical effectiveness, research and development and role clarity” (Davies, Chapman & Boyd, 2015 p.45).

His role as an oncologist has profoundly influenced the manner in which I plan to practice medicine in the future: with respect, compassion, and empathy for my patients. It was my observation of his interactions with cancer surviving patients that first inspired me to pursue medicine. These interactions inspired me not only to embark on a profession where I could serve others, but also make a difference in the lives of others. I believe I can make the biggest impact in the lives of my future patients by combining my passion for the clinic and science as a physician-scientist. Though I am early in my medical journey, and am willing to keep an open mind, it is only natural that I yearn to pursue a profession related to oncology.
