Governance and Leadership

Governance is the structures, responsibilities and processes that guide an organization’s decision-making and performance: who’s in charge of what; how decisions are made; how authority is exercised; and how decision-makers are held accountable.

Efforts to improve board governance have a positive impact on team performance. AFHTO supports boards in ensuring oversight of the best quality of care and patient safety through tools, resources, and training.

And good governance and good performance start with good leadership.

Teams are supported with leadership development through training, tools and resources. Working with and supporting team leaders helps them excel at the oversight and operation of their team.

These tools and resources can strengthen boards in their oversight of the best quality of care, and executive directors in building and collaborating with a team that delivers that care.
