Collaborative Pairs

SEMPHN is one of four primary health networks participating in a demonstration trial of the Collaborative Pairs program developed by The Kings Fund in the UK. The trial, which is being coordinated locally by the Consumer Health Forum, involves health professionals (clinicians or service providers) pairing up with consumers/carers to jointly tackle a health challenge.

Each pair undertakes training which is designed to build leadership and collaborations skills, with the ultimate aim of promoting co-design when undertaking service design or improvement. The training, valued at $5000, will be provided free to successful applicants.

SEMPHN will run two training programs during 2018/19 to be delivered by facilitators Dr Paresh Dawda and health advocate Russell McGowan who recently undertook the Collaborative Pairs facilitators training in the UK.

Each program consists of five days training spread over six months to allow the pairs to work on their project as outlined below.

Applications now invited from eligible pairs for both programs. Application forms can be found here, with applications closing on 14 September for Program 1 and 30 November for Program 2.
