    • Identifing the challenges for governance of health system quality
    • Establishing a new framework for governance of quality
    • Offers support guides in key oversight areas
    • Provides an easy to use assessment tool for trustees and those who support them.

    A research compendium provides access to research information and both can be found at ihi.org/boardquality
