Updated Resource!

THT has updated one of our most popular resources: the Trustee Guidebook on Quality and Patient Safety. As one of the primary responsibilities of a governing board it’s vital for trustees to have a comprehensive understanding of their role in quality and patient safety oversight and improvement.

To accompany the Trustee Guidebook, THT provides Trustee Online, a video library to allow you to access education 24 hours a day, seven days a week from the comfort and convenience of your home or office. The topics compliment those covered in the Trustee Guidebook series (which can be used as a supplemental resource). You will be able to watch video presentations from industry leaders who will help you successfully lead your organization.
