Defence Healthcare Governance

The Defence Healthcare Governance module is provided via the Department of Health Care Education (DHE). This module will assist you to harness existing knowledge and experience of governance in practice. You will build upon that knowledge, around a framework that takes you through the historical and policy development of governance, to a point where you can demonstrate an enhanced understanding of both the rationale for, and the process of healthcare governance, as it applies specifically to the Defence client group and health care environment.
