Clinical care will be top of mind for the consumers participating in the aged care royal commission. And ultimately, the commission will drive focus on governance, ethics and risk management.
Good governance starts at the top, and the board is ultimately responsible for ensuring their executive is trained to the highest quality governance and risk management standards, and ensuring those that are entrusted to their care come first.
Free guidance for directors
Governance Institute of Australia has refreshed their free guide Adding value to governance in aged care to help providers manage their governance responsibilities.
The free guide addresses a broad range of issues including:
- the role of governance and a director
- the unique challenges facing the sector
- factors to consider before taking a board position
- issues the board should consider when appointing a new member
- the relationship between the board and management
- risk management
- interaction with stakeholders.
