This week's reflection

I believe the second half of one's life is meant to be better than the first half. The first half is finding out how you do it. And the second half is enjoying it.

Examining the 'Francis Effect' in Catholic healthcare

October 06, 2015

What influence has Pope Francis had on Catholic healthcare and how can frontline workers in hospitals and care facilities relate his words to the challenging and messy ethical issues they deal with daily?  

Gordon Self, Covenant Health’s VP of Mission Ethic’s and Spirituality helps unpack those questions in an article for Health Progress  Reflections on  ‘I want a Mess’ , which has just  received a bronze award for Best Profile in 2015 by the American Society of Healthcare Publication Editors.
