Integrated Clinical Governance Council (ICGC)



Commitment: Short-term

The Integrated Clinical Governance Council (ICGC) provides oversight for quality and safety across all C.A.R.E. Networks, directs key Clinical Governance functions (e.g., clinical risk, clinical services planning) and integration for cross-continuum design, supported by and aligned with corporate functions. It is chaired by the Chief Medical Officer and Chief Nursing and Allied Health Officer and includes all Vice Presidents accountable for clinical and quality processes. ICGC is responsible for the tools and processes which Island Health uses to guide decisions which define, monitor and enable quality of care.

ICGC will take place on the third Wednesday of every month from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. We are looking for 3 patient partners to sit as members of this council.

We may reach out to individuals after the posting has closed if further information is needed.

The Patient Voices Network has connected me to a community with the same drive to bring person- and family-centred care to the forefront. I am grateful for all opportunities I have been a part of thanks to PVN, which positively impacts patients like my sister and their caregivers. No matter how small, all patient engagement will help shape the future of health care and that I can stand behind
