NCPHN is committed to building the capacity of primary health care workforce to deliver quality health care.
NCPHN partners with local experts and training organisations to deliver face to face learning and development that enhances skills, fosters local integration, builds relationships between clinicians and improves communication between health services.
Examples of NCPHN’s education program include:
- Cultural awareness training
- Immunisation updates for nurses and GPs
- Suicide prevention workshops for GPs and allied health professionals
- End of life care planning for GPs
- Patient Centre Medical Home events for general practice teams
- Speed networking for GPs, allied health professionals and medical specialists across a range of topic areas
The majority of NCPHN’s events are provided at no cost to local health professionals.
NCPHN prioritises professional development that is*:
- Strategic and aligned to NCPHN priorities
- Collaborative (Local Health Districts, universities, other partners actively involved)
- Clinician led
- Best practice – uses adult learning educational principles and clear learning outcomes
- Fosters integration – multidisciplinary audience
GPs: NCPHN is an accredited provider of the Royal Australian College of General Practice (RACGP) and the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) professional development programs. NCPHN applies for RACGP and ACRRM continuing professional development points for events with strong GP attendance.
Nurses and allied health professionals: NCPHN provides certificates of attendance, including the learning outcomes that were achieved, to learning and development participants on request. Certificates can be used to assist clinicians that self-report their continuing professional development activities.
