Government and governance: lessons for boards

One way we can learn from failings is by drawing parallels and considering how lessons of others might apply to your organisation.

Telehealth and clinical governance: Where are we now?

‘Telehealth services use information and communications technologies (ICTs) to deliver health services and transmit health information over both long and short distances. It is about transmitting voice, data, images and information rather than moving care recipients, health professionals or educators. It encompasses diagnosis, treatment, preventive (educational) and curative aspects of healthcare services and typically involves care recipient(s), care providers or educators in the provision of these services directed to the care recipient.’
