A health care organization’s board plays an important role in ensuring quality and safety, and yet many governing bodies are not consistently, effectively, or regularly educated on these topics. The purpose of What Your Board Needs to Know about Health Care Quality and Safety: A Joint Commission Guide is to educate board members about key topics related to quality and safety and to offer recommendations for effective governance. These issues are addressed as they pertain to Joint Commission standards but also—and more importantly—through the broader lens of improving the health of the global community.
