WORKSHOP IN 2016

NCOSS WORKSHOP, SYDNEY, 19 SEPT

COPHE is running a workshop with NCOSS titled New Opportunities for NGOs in Primary Health Care.

It is suitable for people who want to better understand the primary health care landscape, including how Medicare works, the new commissioning roles of Primary Health Networks, and the interface between the NDIS and primary health care. It will also enable participants to explore the potential to expand their NGO’s roles, improve the primary care interface and grow their influence. Case studies will be shared of existing and diverse NGO roles in primary health care across several states.
