Connecting the Community Sector with Primary Health Care

Workshops in April

Connecting the Community Sector with Primary Health Care

Community Owned Primary Health Enterprises (COPHE) and TasCOSS will present free, half-day workshops to explain practical ideas for how your community organisation could create a successful multi-disciplinary primary healthcare enterprise, responsive to the needs of your client group or local community.

This workshop is for community sector organisations who want to better understand:

  • primary health care service development;
  • Medicare funding and how it can be effectively used by the community sector;
  • creating a self-funding primary health service;
  • building best practice integrated primary health service models;
  • the expanding role of Primary Health Networks; and
  • the interface between state and commonwealth funding.

To book, click on the highlighted location, the workshops run from 9-1pm followed by a light lunch:

9 April (North) – The Tramsheds, Launceston

10 April (South) – The Old Woolstore, Hobart

Each organisation is encouraged to register a senior executive and a finance executive for the workshops.
