Following the endorsement of a new strategy to assist Catholic health and aged care services in the formation of trustees, board directors and senior executives, Catholic Health Australia has today launched Pathways – an initiative that will help services maintain their identity and fidelity to their mission.
"At our 'Stewards of the Mission' conference earlier this year, representatives from all the major Catholic health and aged care providers were in agreement that there was huge benefit to be gained from working together in the area of leader formation," Catholic Health Australia CEO Martin Laverty said.
On November 14, Catholic Health Australia launched Pathways, a new initiative that will assist Catholic health and aged care organisations remain true to their Catholic mission and identity. The work is being overseen by the Leader Formation Taskforce, established earlier this year following the CHA "Stewards of the Mission" governance conference.
