PHN Virtual Summit 2020

 Australia's premier virtual summit for 

PHN Quality Improvement and Practice Support teams

December 7th 2020

 How does  your PHN  support high quality high-impact general practice?

On December 7th, 2020, a collaborative of health industry experts will host our annual Practice Coaching Virtual Summit

We would like to invite practice support staff from your PHN to join us.

This full day virtual summit on the art and science of practice coaching is targeted at all members of a practice facilitation team. Presenters will discuss the latest developments in

  • Leading Quality Improvement
  • Digital Technologies
  • Skills and strategies for Engagement and Coaching
  • The Business of Primary Care

For PHNs, supporting general practice quality improvement is a tricky job - requiring a broad set of knowledge and skills.  Thus, we have allowed some time for networking and co-designing in breakouts interspersed across the day to keep you and your team energised and engaged for the duration of the event.

Practice coaches need to have expertise in primary health care, be well versed in the science of quality improvement, possess acumen in the business of general practice, and have leadership and coaching skills at the highest level.



Special PHN packages are now available at Early Bird Pricing.

$990 (plus GST) for unlimited access registration for all your staff to all presentations including 1 month access to all recordings.

What is a virtual summit?

Good question. A virtual summit is just like a conference, but delivered entirely online.

So at least you won't have to queue for lunch, and if the coffee is not up to scratch -  its your fault!

How will the talks be presented?

Our speakers will be presenting via webinar. You will be able to see and hear them live, and view their slides. A text chat will be active during each talk, and there will be an opportunity to ask each speaker questions.

How long do I have access to the content for?

All talks will be recorded and available to registered participants for one month after each talk.

Will I get a certificate?

Sure. What would you like it to say?

What do I get in the PHN Sponsorship Package

A sponsoring PHN purchases access to as many of their staff as they wish.

The PHN will be sent a link that will provide their staff with a free log in


Can our practices participate?

This summit is specifically designed for PHN staff. 

Is the PHN Package good value?

Absolutely. A virtual summit is very cost effective, especially when there are no travel or accommodation costs.

Some of Australia's most experienced practice coaches will be sharing their skills and resources. We believe this training will be invaluable. Imagine how much it would cost to bring them all to your PHN?
