Western Cross-Sector Community of Practice

Overview

HealthWest Partnership and Inner North West PCP (INWPCP) have partnered with the National Disability Service (NDS) to bring you the Western Melbourne Cross-Sector Community of Practice.

The Community of Practice brings together people from the health, community, aged care and disability sectors to collaboratively identify and respond to the emerging challenges and opportunities arising from the NDIS, Aged Care and Mental Health reforms. We aim to exchange good practice to achieve better consumer-directed-care outcomes.

Community of Practice Forums

 

Coming up…

Our next forum will consider What does Health Literacy have to do with Access and Inclusion?

Health literacy is about recognising the social, political and environmental factors that enable a person to find, understand, and use information and services in all agencies, not just health. As service providers we need to develop information, resources, supports and environments that are accessible and inclusive of a diverse range of needs. This forum will focus on the practical aspect of health literacy and provide participants with an understanding of how to embed health literacy principles into practice.
