The primary care workforce
We support primary care providers through training and education, networking opportunities, and keeping providers informed about changes at a local, state and federal level.
Our role is to:
- improve coordination and communication between existing services
- encourage and support new and expanded services in areas of need
- recast the health system to be centred around the needs of the person, rather than the requirements of health services.
How do we engage with the primary care workforce?
Councils and Advisory Groups
More information about our Clinical Council, General Practice Expert Advisory Group and other ways to get involved is available on our website.
We host regular, virtual and face-to-face networking events for practice managers and practice nurses. These are an opportunity to keep up-to-date, share ideas and learn from your peers. Keep an eye on our events calendar and our e-newsletters for upcoming meetings and networking events.
We use the Basecamp platform to provide closed online forums for practice managers and nurses in the NWMPHN region. This provides opportunities to connect with peers across the region, anytime and from anywhere. Participants in the Basecamp forums can ask questions, share ideas and discuss topics that are important to the workforce. Questions can often be quickly answered on Basecamp – it is a highly recommended tool for practice managers and nurses.
If you would like to join Basecamp or have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

Regional interdisciplinary networking events
Regional networks provide an opportunity for primary health care providers including pharmacists, allied health, aged care nurses and general practice teams to learn from each other. There are opportunities to come together for CPD training and facilitated networking.
Our first regional network topic will be family violence, starting in March 2021. Keep an eye on our events page and General Practice Updates for dates.
