Have your say  Search for Collaborative Pairs in Western Sydney

Thu 06, Sep 2018

Deadline: n/a
Who: Western Sydney 

Western Sydney PHN is currently involved in an exciting pilot in partnership with the Consumers Health Forum to bring Collaborative Pairs to the Australian market.

Collaborative Pairs is a leadership program, developed by the King's Fund in the UK, where consumers and service providers work in genuine partnership to lead person-centred health care, services and systems.

Western Sydney is one of the first trial areas and Western Sydney PHN is currently seeking interested pairs within Western Sydney to apply for the first round of this unique leadership opportunity. So if you are a health consumer representative from Western Sydney, this is for you!

The program will appeal to consumers and health service providers who are excited by the opportunity to participate as a pair in a leadership development program that will facilitate transformational change.

This program “Collaborative Pairs” will be delivered by facilitators, trained by the King’s Fund to deliver this program in Australia, as part of a National Demonstration Trial being co-ordinated by Consumers Health Forum of Australia (CHF) in partnership with Western Sydney PHN and three other Primary Health Networks and the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care. The program will assist health professionals (clinicians and managers) and patients and consumer leaders to build productive collaborative relationships, exploring how different roles and perspectives can be a constructive force for change.
