The COVID-19 pandemic brings huge challenges to the delivery of health care in Aotearoa, and on those providing leadership across the Health & Disability sector. Leadership during this time will be demanding and stressful, members of your teams may be fearful and anxious, requiring reassurance and facts to understand the complex issue of COVID-19.
