Congregational Leader, Sr Clare Nolan, and ethicist Dr Dan Fleming

Print

Ethicist Dr Dan Fleming is doing a podcast series from St Vincent’s Health Australia, telling the compelling stories of caregivers on the COVID-19 frontline.

Dan, working from a spare room at home, is connecting with staff that work at St Vincent’s hospitals and aged care facilities across Australia.

“Every day they do heroic and beautiful work in offering care – their stories are an embodiment of our mission in action.” Dr Fleming, group manager – Ethics and Formation with St Vincent’s Health Australia, said.

“St Vincent’s is full of amazing people … doctors, nurses, cleaners, kitchen staff, executives, pastoral carers.”

The idea for a podcast was planted before the coronavirus pandemic hit. A broadcast enthusiast from an early age, Dr Fleming had planned a series that explored the mission of St Vincent’s health workers – however the project has taken on a powerful new significance.

One recent guest was Congregational Leader, Sr Clare. Dan concluded his latest podcast for the hospital with: “Wow. Great discussion. Thank you Sister Clare Nolan for explaining how the courageous to be compassionate and dedicate your life to that can transform your life and others.

“You touched so many areas of compassionate leadership actions that you have taken, seen and supported during your time at St Vincent’s and one which really resonates with me is to create a culture of connection. To connect with one another, to bring best out of people every day makes you so graceful, Sister Clare Nolan.”
