PHN Primary Care Support Teams,

General Practice Teams and

Allied Health Practices.

How do you support high quality, high-impact general practice and primary care?

On 25th February, 2022, a collaborative of health industry experts will host our annual Practice Coach Virtual Summit

We invite practice staff and practice teams from each PHN to join us.

This is a full day virtual summit on the art and science of building thriving practices.

It is targeted at all those who aim to improve systems for delivering care - PHN QI and practice support teams, practice managers, practice nurses, clinicians, and administration staff.

Presentations include the latest developments in

  • Leading Quality Improvement
  • Using advanced data management in primary care
  • Motivational Interviewing 
  • Self care strategies
  • Proactive Covid planning | latest recommendations from #OzSage

Supporting general practice quality improvement is a tricky job - requiring a broad set of knowledge and skills.  Sessions will have opportunities for Q&A and sharing of ideas and experiences.

All sessions will be rich with practical skills which enable you to apply your learning.

The day will conclude with an expert panel discussion.

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.

Registration includes 12 months membership of practice coach college, with access to webinars, articles, and the opportunity to share ideas and experiences with other college members.
