Local primary healthcare workers are invited to attend a clinical society event hosted by Country to Coast Queensland (CCQ) in Bundaberg on 29 August at 5.30 pm.
Regional clinical societies play a crucial role in nurturing practitioner relationships by offering a platform where the primary healthcare workforce can unite, forge new friendships, network, acquire fresh knowledge and enjoy collaborative and enriching experiences in a space dedicated to sharing insights.
The theme for the initial regional round of clinical society events across the CCQ region is ‘Strengthening Pathways – Dementia: A localised approach’.
CCQ is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that delivers Primary Health Network programs on behalf of the Commonwealth Department of Health and Aged Care.
CCQ CEO Julie Sturgess said she was looking forward to the team hosting face-to-face health professional networks across the Wide Bay and Sunshine Coast regions and bringing the health community together.
“Local clinical connections are more important than ever,” Julie said.
“We welcome all health professionals and healthcare workers and students, working in primary care, general practice, allied health, community health, Aboriginal health, hospital, aged care and pharmacy settings to these events.
“Each event will include speakers, local insights and an energetic space to share and collaborate.”
Guest speakers at the event include: Simon Edwards, Clinical Education Sunshine Coast and Wide Bay region for the Queensland Ambulance Service, Jayne Moyle, Occupational Therapist, Bundaberg Hospital and Dementia Support Australia's Corinne Lewis State Manager Queensland, Amanda Martorano Regional Manager, Frankie Vicars Dementia Consultant.
