The Centre for Remote Health recently delivered its two-day Primary Health Care Workshop in Broome with participants from the Kimberley Population Health Unit and Kimberley Aboriginal Health Service.
The challenging and team-structured Primary Health Care (PHC) Game forms part of this workshop, and forces consensus to be found, decisions to be made and priorities to be reached by community advisory groups, with the clock ticking!
Primary Health Care: Making a difference examines the environmental, structural and philosophical issues that impact upon health provision in remote Australia. It looks at the core principles of primary health care as they currently apply in the Australian context. These principles should form the framework by which we deliver care in remote Australia. This is based on a comprehensive PHC approach which takes a ‘more than ever” into account as well as the social determinants of health, health inequalities, health promotion, illness prevention, treatment and care of the sick, rehabilitation, community engagement and development, advocacy and collaboration and population health approaches. This inevitability leads us to look at local policies to determine whether in fact the service is on track.
This workshop can be tailored to suit the needs of your organisation and state. The workshop applies the big picture to the local context.
