This one-day seminar targets medical leaders seeking an understanding of generally accepted standards of good organizational governance with regard to current changes to Quebec's health and social services network. Questions concerning the new boards of directors for the Centres intégrés de santé et de services sociaux (CISSS) and Centres intégrés universitaires de santé et de services sociaux (CIUSSS) will be addressed, including: What is their role? What is their mandate and what is its scope? How will they change the network's general and territorial governance?

This activity aims to provide a factual and up-to-date overview of current changes to the health network's governance. New ways of assuming positive, strategic medical leadership that meets the challenges raised by the network's reorganization will also be presented.

Participating physicians will better understand the implications of the new governance and know when and how to act effectively in this changing environment.
