PCN Board Governance Manual Template
The PCN Board Governance Manual Template has been jointly developed by the AMA and AHS to assist PCNs to meet the requirements set out in the
Alberta Health Primary Care Network Governance Policy.
While use of the template is strongly encouraged, it is not mandatory. Many PCN Boards across the province have developed a governance handbook/manual or have established guidelines. PCNs that wish to maintain the format of their current handbook/manual will need to ensure that it meets the requirements set out in Alberta Health policy. For more information please contact 1-866-714-5724.
Succession planning is a key risk mitigation strategy and it makes good business and board sense! Being prepared and having a plan ready when unexpected things happen will diminish possible negative impact and allow a PCN to continue with minimal disruption.
This guidebook provides information to PCNs on the importance and value of community engagement, and provides a progression of steps a PCN can undertake to enhance their level of community engagement. It provides a continuum with the creation of a Community Advisory Council (CAC) being the ultimate final step for those PCNs ready and prepared for such an investment.
