Governing Catholic healthcare organisations: what are the mission “must haves?”

Mission 'Must Haves'

We have “clinical governance,” and “corporate governance” – we also need “mission governance.” Cath Garner takes viewers through mission “must haves.”

Cath Garner from Cabrini Health discusses the features of a Catholic service that communicate authentic witness to the Gospel and how organisations can ensure faithfulness to their responsibility for governance of the mission. Cath discusses the tensions between business and mission (particularly for private hospitals), the importance of the CEO in affecting culture in an organisation, and the role of Boards and governing bodies to ensure Catholic health and aged care organisations stay mission focussed.
