    Hi,
    Corporate governance is not long to the boards of directors to warm their seats during board business.
    It is all about being well informed, skilled including knowing the numbers and asking the right questions during boardroom business.
    Issues of health governance may be in principle similar to what other organisations cherish except that the health environment requires such tools like health audit and administration to be know of the hows,whats ,have and have nots. It is about knowing the risks that affect their organisations and strive to approvals of the plans that are manageable and measurable.
    As identified of the issues for the conference are but real areas of concern . Those that shall be discussed can easily be developed into a syllabus that can easily be called clinical and admistration assesssment qualification, may be it can be called :certificate in health management audit practice . This will be bsaed on stadards ,ethics and programs that will attract international acknowledgement. The conference is though late,it comes at the right time .
