Central and Eastern Sydney PHN is seeking Expressions of Interest from Allied Health Providers to participate in our 2021 AHP Peer Group Learning (PGL) Program which is being rolled out across the PHN region.
PGL activities are a popular way to identify and address specific learning needs, discuss cases and share knowledge in an open, interactive supportive environment for likeminded professionals. The program provides opportunities for networking and encourages a multi-disciplinary approach to healthcare as well as fostering skills in leadership, deliberation and consensus.
The PGL learning format allows AHPs to share their knowledge and discuss daily practice issues with peers. Allied Health Professionals will be able to self-report on their learning with their governing/accrediting body.
The criteria for Peer Groups are as follows:
Minimum four (4) hours of educational content across the meetings (excluding planning and review meetings)
Groups must not exceed a total of 12 participants
Each meeting must be at least one (1) hour in duration
Each meeting must have a facilitator (group nominated) to convene meetings, including
