Description

A "MUST-HAVE" PROGRAM FOR CATHOLIC HEALTH CARE LEADERS

Understanding the foundations of Catholic health care ministry is an essential competency for today's leaders. Executives, board members, directors and managers who work in Catholic health settings are leaders of a ministry. For this reason, an understanding of the church's theological roots, social justice tradition and ethical framework is essential for the successful leader.

The Foundations of Catholic Health Care Leadership Program is used as a primer for new leaders in Catholic health care. Thousands of leaders have attended this program for more than two decades either through their own health system or through CHA’s in-person or on-line format. This program is a "must-have" for all leaders in Catholic health care.

The online course takes place in a series of sessions on six consecutive Fridays lasting up to two hours each. Each session will include up to two presentations, as well as opportunities for interaction via online chat, voice contact and online small group discussions. Since each session focuses on a key principle of Catholic health leadership, registrants are expected to participate in all sessions to benefit from the wealth of insight and information that is covered during the entire program. Assignments and reading materials will be available for download prior to each session. An orientation session to familiarize participants with the online format is scheduled for Feb. 9 from 1 to 2 p.m. ET.

Early registration discount for CHA members: $375, per person (through Dec. 22, 2016)
CHA members: $425, per person, after Dec. 22, 2016
Other registrants: $600, per person
Group discount: 10 percent off each individual registration for groups of five or more

PARTICIPATE AS A GROUP AT YOUR FACILITY OR ON YOUR OWN

To enhance interaction and benefits of the formational experience, we recommend that registrants participate together with colleagues in groups at the same facility if at all possible. This encourages quality interaction and immediate application of the online program content.

The program is also extremely beneficial to persons who participate as individuals in cases where there isn’t an opportunity to have a group at the same facility. Persons who participate individually will be linked electronically with individual participants from other locations for all group discussions to maximize everyone’s opportunity to benefit from group learning and interaction.
