Governance

Governance is seen as the means whereby the issues of quality in care can be addressed. It can be viewed as a comprehensive approach rather than an addition sum of methods and measures. Whilst this course focuses principally on governance matters in the Dutch health service, it also includes case studies from independent Dutch healthcare organisations and from healthcare organisations around the world.
Students will become familiar with the meaning of governance, and instruments that help govern: an annual report, an annual account, a supervisory board, the assessment and structuring of quality of care and patient satisfaction/loyalty.
