ACHG: CEO mentor program update

Posted 13 December 2018

In July the Australian Centre for Healthcare Governance in partnership with the Department of Health and Human Services commenced a pilot mentoring program for hospital CEOs of rural and metropolitan health services.

The mentoring program is conducted through an online platform that facilitates the process through online training modules for both mentors and mentees, and a structured approach to establishing and working through the mentoring relationship driven by development objectives.

Recently, mentors and mentees had the opportunity to report on their progress and experience with the program via a webinar. Additionally, participants have had the opportunity to hear from a panel discussion headed by Neville Board, Chief Digital Health Officer at DHHS, and Kira Leeb, Executive Director Health System Performance and Reporting at the Victorian Agency for Health Information, on the ITC challenges facing the health sector.

'The feedback on the mentoring program from mentees and mentors has been overwhelmingly positive,' said Jo-Ann Moorfoot, ACHG Executive Director. 

'Mentees have expressed how valuable it is to have someone independent and knowledgable at the end of the phone to speak to when they need a sounding board.

'While mentors have said how they've personally gained from the experience of supporting individuals new to the CEO journey.'

The CEO mentoring program will continue through to July 2019 when a formal evaluation will be completed. With its early success, the ACHG is currently investigating options to furthering the program next year.
