Healthy North Coast provides continuing professional development through 8 regional clinical societies, helping to build the capacity of our local primary health care workforce.
In June we ran CPD education and networking evenings about dealing with difficult clients; eating disorders; clinician wellbeing; chronic pain; and navigating the NDIS.
Several of the events attracted more than 40 attendees, who enjoyed the opportunity to hear from experts in their field, examine case studies, share ideas and network with their local community of health practitioners.
More than 60 people attended last month’s Port Macquarie and Hastings Clinical Society event to improve their understanding of the NDIS.
The evening included guest speakers, an open forum discussion and learning about practical resources that can help support clients and patients.
Typical of the feedback from attendees were these morsels: ‘Venue fabulous and presenter well prepared. Food was great. Well done.’ And ‘Very open conversation and information.’
We encourage all people working in and around primary health care services to join their local society. You can even join more than one! Numbers at face-to-face events may be limited due to COVID-19 restrictions, so register for events early to avoid disappointment.
