Convenient and affordable education
The necessity to be educated and informed is at an all-time high and your budget and availability to attend healthcare conferences all over the country is low. That’s why Texas Healthcare Trustees brings it to you! Trustee Online is a convenient and affordable way to increase your knowledge on health care governance right in your office or home.
Trustee Online is the on-demand video companion to the Trustee Guidebook series. Effective health care governance can be broken into nine essential domains and THT has developed these study tools to use for independent learning or as part of a board education plan. For more information about developing an annual board education plan please contact us at 512-465-1013 or email@example.com.
Trustee Online covers the nine essential domains of health care governance, each containing two hours of content, and is divided into easy-to-view 15 – 20 segments that is ideal for both self –study or combined education in the board room. The Trustee Online modules conclude with a knowledge assessment which provides continuing education credit. Those who purchase any Trustee Online module will also receive its accompanying Trustee Guidebook on the same topic.

Nursing and Allied Health Professionals
Nurses interact with patients 24 hours a day/seven days a week. They advocate for their patients, interact with family members, communicate with physicians who are directing the patient’s treatment, collaborate with other disciplines providing care and teach, advise and listen to their patients. With such an integral role in health care delivery it is important for trustees to have a keen understanding of the role of nurses and the allied workforce. Read more...
