Governing for quality: A quality and safety guide for district health boards

5 Apr 2016 | Building Leadership & Capability

This guide will help district health boards (DHBs) put quality and safety at the centre of governance and drive improvement in their organisations. While the guide has been written with DHBs in mind, the principles and guidance are relevant and can be applied to all health care providers.

It includes:

  • an outline of the role of boards as agents for quality and safety improvement
  • the seven essential steps boards can take to improve the quality and safety of health care services
  • a checklist to guide boards and assess progress.
