Ethical Governance in Health Care: A Board Leadership Guide for Building an Ethical Culture
Ethical Governance in Health Care helps boards of trustees and CEOs design programs and allocate resources that strengthen their effectiveness and accountability. In an era of egregious actions and mistakes directly attributable to lax oversight and weak governance by corporate boards, health care trustees must collaborate with institutional leaders to respond to the changing legal, moral, and ethical climate of the care delivery system. Ethical Governance in Health Care redefines the role, function, power, and process of governing boards. As a practical guide, the book provides direction on how to confront moral and ethical dilemmas. It defines the difference between the legal environment and a facility's ethical climate to help trustees translate organizational values into future plans. Ethical Governance in Health Care also addresses the critical challenge of putting mission into practice. At stake is the hospital's ability to build trust among the community, staff, vendors, public regulators, and accreditation agencies. A special place is reserved in this book for guidance on avoiding actual and perceived conflicts of interest. Book jacket.
