Collaborative Pairs applications open for free leadership training
Wednesday, 15 August 2018
SEMPHN is offering health professionals and health consumers a unique opportunity to take part in an innovative leadership program designed to improve collaboration and deliver improvements in health services.
Successful applicants to the Collaborative Pairs program will receive $5000 of leadership training free of charge as they learn how different roles and perspectives can be a constructive force for change.
The program was developed by The Kings Fund in the UK and SEMPHN is one of four primary health networks trialing the program in Australia in conjunction with the Consumers Health Forum.
There will be two programs (one beginning in October 2018 and one in February 2019), with each program comprising five days of training spread out over six months.
Applicants must apply in pairs (one clinician/service provider and one consumer/carer) as they will work together for the duration of the program to build their skills in collaborative practice by working on a joint challenge.
Applicants for the first program, to be facilitated by leading GP Dr Paresh Dawda and health consumer advocate Russell McGowan, close 10 September. Applications for the second program will open on 15 November and close 30 November.
