New guide from JCR aims to provide boards with valuable quality, safety resources
A healthcare organization’s board plays an important role in ensuring quality and safety, but many governing boards are not consistently, effectively, or regularly educated on these topics.
“What Your Board Needs to Know About Quality and Patient Safety: A Joint Commission Guide” — available now from Joint Commission Resources — aims to educate board members about critical quality and safety topics and offers recommendations for effective governance. Key features of the guide include:
- Executive summaries of important topics with easy-to-understand graphics.
- Quick snapshots of top areas of concern for healthcare organizations.
- Tools for evaluating board effectiveness.
