Governing Through Healthcare Transformation: Leading Practices in Effective Governance and Collaborative Governance

Date: Tuesday, October 23, 2018

5:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Maximum: 80

With Ontario’s healthcare transformation well underway, health care provider boards face increasing expectations for how they govern their own organizations as well as how they interact with, and contribute to governance leadership of, the broader health care system. Making sense of how a board can meet these new requirements, while staying within its governance role, can be a real challenge.

Created specifically for board members of FHTs and NPLCs, this three-hour workshop is designed to help them make sense of the changes and identify the practical steps they can take to enhance their governance capacity. Topics to be covered in the workshop include:

  • Latest governance thinking on the crucial role of a board and what it means to provide effective governance leadership to an organization;
  • Changing expectations of health care provider boards in Ontario and what they mean for how boards operate, including the new governance requirements of the recent MOHLTC-FHT contract;
  • What collaborative governance is and how it is done, including learnings and case studies of FHTs that have been successful; and,
  • Practical tips and tools for building a “systems” perspective into your board’s current governance processes.

This will be a highly interactive session providing participants with information directly relevant to their FHT/NPLC governance role as well practical tools and advice that they can take back to their boards and integrate into their ongoing governance practices.
