Expressions of interest for Patient Centred Medical Neighbourhood Readiness Program

CESPHN is offering general practices located in our region the opportunity to be part of the Patient Centre Medical Neighbourhood (PCMN) Readiness Program

Why is the PCMN Readiness Program a priority?

The PCMN readiness program is an opportunity for general practices to prepare for the future. As you know Australian primary health care will be going through some significant changes with the redesign of Practice Incentive Program (PIP) (May 2018), to the introduction of a Quality Improvement PIP and the implementation of the Health Care Homes model of care in Australia.

The Program offers:

  • Ongoing support of a Quality Improvement Support Program Officer
  • Face to face training
  • Workshops
  • Clinical leadership training
  • Assessment of the readiness of your practice
  • Quality improvement resources and tools from CESPHN
  • Upskilling in:
    – the new funding models
