Upcoming Events


2 May & 27 July 2017 - Decoding the Code, Melbourne & Brisbane (REGISTER)


Decoding the Code is an online program in Catholic ethics for people working in the health and care sector - the CHA Code of Ethical Standards provides the key content. The course is offered online over approximately 16 hours consisting of eight two-hour sessions. It commences with an introductory seminar (face to face attendance preferred) and is followed by online coursework with ne sessions being uploaded fortnightly over sixteen weeks.

Aimed at those wishing to enhance their knowledge and practice of the principles of Catholic morality, the course is most likely to benefit organisational clinical leaders, executives and other mission leaders, managers and pastoral practitioners. Participants will gain enhanced knowledge, practice and confidence in applying the principles of Catholic ethics to the ministry of health and aged care.
As has become customary, there will be two cohorts undertaking Decoding the Code in 2017.  Sites for the face-to-face seminar have been chosen in consultation with members to support wide participation around the country.
