NSW Health Management Leadership Awards: Aged Care
The 2021 ACHSM NSW Health Manager Leadership Awards are now open.
Once again it has been an incredibly tough year for health service managers across NSW.
Thank you for your service to your teams and communities across NSW.
In 2020 we acknowledged and celebrated the value of health management leadership across all health service contexts.
This year, the Awards will focus on recognising outstanding health management leadership in the aged care sector.
Health managers working in aged care have been required to draw on their leadership skills and attributes in 2021, demonstrating resilience, perseverance and a strong commitment to teamwork when leading through uncertainty.
Through our conversations with those working in the sector, the enormous amount of dedication, desire for improvement and genuine passion for improving the experience and quality of life of elderly Australians living in aged care is a recurring message.
Leadership happens at every level. Tell us, in a few paragraphs, about a health manager colleague, peer or manager working in the NSW aged care system who has displayed outstanding health management leadership qualities.
The nominated person must:
- must work and reside in NSW
- must work in the aged care sector (public, private or not for profit)
- must have shown outstanding leadership in 2021 has an aged care health management professional
- does not have to be an ACHSM member
There will be no single award winner. All nominated health managers who meet the above criteria will be publicly announced as winners and receive an award at an awards event later in 2021 (due to the COVID pandemic, this year’s event will be virtual, with hardcopy awards sent to award winners).
