Health service organisations need to consider their governance vulnerabilities & risks
Following the IBAC investigation into issues in Bendigo Health, which showed a breakdown in governance and administration of health service integrity systems, the DHHS commissioned the VHA and the Australian Centre for Healthcare Governance to develop a framework to support healthcare providers to establish governance frameworks and mitigate risk.
In recent times a number of public and private entities have come under question with regard to their integrity systems and practices, and the health sector has not been exempt.
The seminar and webinar will look at case study examples and give attendees an introduction to the Integrity Governance Framework and how your organisation should be using it.
The integrity governance framework and better practice assessment and reporting tool are resources to assist Victorian public health services in assessing their integrity risks. They are designed to provide guidance on the development of appropriate policies and processes to strengthen integrity culture and reduce the likelihood of fraud and corruption in their organisations.
This framework draws on contemporary risk management and integrity practice and adapts these principles to the health service environment. It uses the three lines of defence model as a systematic and practical approach for addressing fraud and corruption vulnerabilities at frontline staff, management and Board levels. The assessment and reporting tool provides direction to health services on suggested practice through a simple self-assessment process.
Please note that both the seminar and webinar sessions are the same, you only need to register for one:
