Adapting governance practices to thrive in the current environment requires a flexible but active approach. At the VHA and ACHG Governance Conference: Driving the future of healthcare governance,  healthcare leaders will be empowered to move into the next generation of governance that integrates practice with an embedded culture of governance.

Taking lessons from the past, learnings from now, and innovation across the healthcare sector to generate the future framework for governance, experts in modern governance will share  how to create a governance culture, adapt to digital health, govern during a Royal Commission, and have the opportunity to participate in panel discussions on the future of healthcare.

This forum is to assist VHA Members and the health sector with governance responsibilities. 

All voting members who paid their membership fee by July 2018 are entitled to one complimentary registration.
