Quality & safety expert to lead conference panel

Posted 28 September 2017

The VHA has convened a panel of highly respected governance experts for day one of the 2017 VHA Annual Conference Humanity in health, at the MCG on October 5-6.

In the wake of a number of high profile, national health service failures resulting in poor care and outcomes for patients, governance is a hot topic in healthcare.

Jo-Anne Moorfoot, Executive Director of the revitalised Australian Centre for Healthcare Governance, will facilitate the panel in discussing sector insights of current day governance challenges.

A former hospital clinician and quality and safety expert, Ms Moorfoot has a wealth of health governance and organisational transformational change experience. She has worked in senior governance, risk and compliance roles at Austin and Monash Health services and has a background in community health and the rural health sector.

Sitting on the discussion panel is Austin Health’s Chief Medical Officer Dr Fergus Kerr, Djerriwarrh Health Services Chief Medical Officer Dr Liz Mullins and Michael Gorton, Chair of Alfred Health and Principal at Russell Kennedy Lawyers.
