Chapter 2 – Doing it Our Way: Governance in ACCHOs
This chapter describes ACCHO governance practices. Governance in ACCHOs is about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ health and welfare being in the hands of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. ACCHOs do not have just one governance model, but rather different models that reflect local needs and protocols. ACCHO governance has several components including cultural governance, strategic governance and clinical governance.
The content within this chapter was drawn from a rapid review of the literature and meta-synthesis of ACCHO case studies. This was refined through consultation with a newly established ACCHO and collective input from the CREATE Leadership Group to include perspectives from the ACCHO sector nationwide.
