EHMA-GGI Special Interest Group on Governance
Good Governance Institute – European Health Management Association (EHMA)
Launched at EHMA Conference 2019 – Espoo, Finland
The Special Interest Group on Governance has been launched!
EHMA and GGI have established a Special Interest Group (SIG) on Governance, launched at the EHMA 2019 Annual Conference. This group is facilitated by GGI and represents a professional, formal and informal network. The aim of the group is to debate/discuss pertinent/topical common issues and challenges (both now and in the future) in the following areas:
– The future of healthcare delivery and how governance will need to adapt and can support new delivery models
– Disseminating lessons and best practice internationally on identified governance themes
– Serve as a pool of expert advice and input into member’s initiatives: including research, publications, events, visits and study tours
– Facilitated master classes on specific governance challenges led by the Good Governance Institute
Outputs for this network will include:
– Production of one publication annually and blogs contributed by members of the SIG on key themes, challenges and opportunities identified within the group
– 1 or 2 annual member meetings (either in person or online)
– Visits between members and organised study tours to encourage sharing of ideas, learning and best practice across Europe
– Building a European Body of Knowledge on Governance for the benefit of individual members and their organisations.
The first meeting of the SIG on Governance focused on establishing and agreeing the key themes and focus for the group, reflecting the most important issues that the members would like to explore, and identify what this pan-European group can achieve through this membership that they would not be able to access elsewhere.
Those interested in pursuing a more active role within the group can become Member of the SIG Advisory Group, which will lead on the co-creation of the group’s next meetings, including shaping the programme and content for publications.
The outputs of these European meetings will be shared with all members and will inform the themes to be agreed for the upcoming meetings.
