Today's dynamic health care system creates a complex set of roles and responsibilities for PCN Board and Joint Governance members. Board members must be skilled and knowledgeable in advanced governance matters in order to best contribute to and influence the performance of their boards. Building on the success of the first round of PCN Board Competency Training sessions, newly enhanced and more interactive courses are available for 2018/19.

Past participants have said that new board members, treasurers and about-to-be board members will find these courses to be of great value and a worthwhile investment of their time. 

If you want to advance your governance knowledge, we are pleased to present a series of competency building courses, jointly developed and delivered by Alberta Medical Association and Alberta Health Services.
