With grateful thanks to the Victorian Healthcare Association in Melbourne, Australia, Healthcare Governance Review is pleased to make available to readers a free copy of the Association’s 2010 special governance edition of its Health Matters publication.
The Victoria Healthcare Association (VHA) is the major peak body representing the interests of the public healthcare sector in Victoria, Australia. Their members are public hospitals, rural and regional health services, community health services and aged care facilities. Established since 1938, the VHA promotes the improvement of health outcomes for all Victorians, from the perspective of its members.
In April 2010, the VHA published a special governance edition of its regular Health Matters publication. Titled ‘The Governance Board Game’ the publication contains unique articles on clinical governance and corporate governance, including board member selection. An article looking at governance in the UK was provided by Stuart Emslie, Editor of Healthcare Governance Review.
