Full Report COVER

Quality pastoral care is foundational to Catholic health and aged care.  It is not an optional extra: to be a provider of Catholic health and aged care requires pastoral care to be part of all that we do. In 2015 Catholic Health Australia (CHA) conducted a pastoral care mapping survey of the Catholic health and aged care sector. The completed surveys represented 85 percent of Catholic hospital beds and 60 percent of Catholic provided residential aged care beds and community care places in Australia.

Based on the survey findings, CHA has prepared:

  • A full report with an analysis of each of the questions together with an executive summary, the key findings and recommendations. This full version of CHA's Pastoral Care Mapping Survey Report is available for FREE download (please click here to download). 
  • A short report which provides the executive summary and the key findings and recommendations. This short version of CHA's Pastoral Care Mapping Survey Report is available for FREE download (please click here to download). 
  • A pastoral care assessment tool. This tool has been developed so that the recommendations coming out of the pastoral care mapping survey can be used by individuals, teams and organisations as a way of recognising strengths and determining areas for improvement. This tool is available for FREE download (please click here to download).
