Learning from how not to do it: VHA forum

Posted 10 November 2017

Drama in a health service is nothing new for most of us – but here’s a chance to see what senior management and the Board are like behind the scenes when a health and governance catastrophe goes down.

In what looks set to be an entertaining session at the VHA Rural and Regional Forum, the Victorian Managed Insurance Authority is leading a hypothetical session on risk management and governance.

JoAnne Moorfoot, Executive Director of the Australian Centre for Healthcare Governance will also be taking part of the session, which will be set at a mythical rural hospital they’re calling Wombat Trail Flat, or WTF Health Service.

For more information on the forum, at Marysville from November 27-28 click here
