The UQ NMHSPF team will be providing Stage 1, 2 and 3 user training workshops from July to October 2017 for Primary Health Networks, state health departments and Local Hospital Networks to assist them in using the NMHSPF for their planning. Workshops are being held in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. A further round of Stage 1, 2 and 3 training workshops will be held in early 2018. For more information please contact us.
The UQ NMHSPF team, funded by the Australian Government Department of Health, provided Stage 1 user training to representatives from 28 Primary Health Networks in May and June 2017. This first stage of face-to-face training provided users with an introductory level understanding of the scope, structure and application of the NMHSPF in regional mental health service planning. Workshops were held in Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. Feedback from the workshops is being used to refine the training curriculum.
On 22-23 February 2017 the Queensland Centre for Mental Health Research at The University of Queensland hosted Sharing learnings from the early implementation of stepped care: A PHN collaborative planning workshop in collaboration with the Australian Government Department of Health. The aims of the workshop were to promote a common understanding of the core elements of stepped care, bring together PHN learnings based on early implementation experience, and identify priorities for future phases of this long-term reform agenda.
