Shared Purpose Statement

Catholic Health Australia launched its Shared Purpose Statement at the opening session of CHA's 2012 national conference in Perth on August 20. The statement seeks to articulate the shared goals and vision underpinning Catholic health and aged care services, and express the unique characteristics that differentiate Catholic services from government or for-profit health and aged care services.

The Shared Purpose Statement will be used by CHA in its communication with members, the Church, governments, and the broader community to express the importanceof Catholic health and aged care services within the Australian community. It will be a key formation resource for staff and board leaders of Catholic services.

CHA developed a paper outlining the background to the initiative and the process under way for the development of the statement. To access the Consultation Paper click here.
