This year the CHA National Conference will be held in Canberra. The 2015 Conference theme is "Together Towards Tomorrow", with a focus on "Collaboration, Advocacy & Action". In an era where health markets are increasingly competitive and community needs are ever growing, the distinctive nature of Catholic health provision requires leadership which is both visionary and effective.
Delegates can expect high quality presentations from nationally recognised speakers. The breakout sessions have been designed to explore specific areas in more detail covering the theological, practical and governance considerations that follow for organisations committed to enacting their mission in complex commercial markets.

At the CHA National Conference the My Future Care website was launched. The web based resource provides information to help ensure people think about their health care needs and discuss them with others. The resource provides a framework that is consistent with the CHA Code of Ethical Standards for Catholic health and aged care services, but has been designed to be appropriate for people of all faiths and none.
