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, an initiative of the Ageing, Disability, Mental Health Collaborative Panel. The purpose is to bring together different sectors to collaborate and exchange good practice to achieve better consumer-directed care outcomes. Using a thematic approach, the network aims to support service providers to successfully navigate multiple service reforms.
We will hold 3 forums in 2018:
The Forums are coordinated by a Steering Committee. See the Terms of Reference: Western Cross-Sector Community of Practice Steering Committee
These forums follow on from three successful forums held in 2017. Western Melbourne Cross Sector CoP_Evaluation Summary 2017
The National Disability Service will also bring four Communities of Practice from across Victoria together for a combined forum:
This forum will explore how we can collaborate in the emerging competitive market being created by the reforms in Aged Care, Disability and Mental Health. The forum will also enable sharing of key learnings from the Community of Practice project which is led by NDS as part of Collaborative Panel initiatives. There will be opportunity for networking.
Participation is open to any clinician/worker, team leader or manager representing services that are interested in progressing a consumer-directed care approach within their organisations across the west.
These forums will assist participants by providing examples of consumer-directed care and innovation, while offering a great opportunity for networking and collaboration. See the Terms of Reference: Western Cross-Sector Community of Practice
