Along with the Executive Officer, we have an opportunity for an additional ACDHS delegate. Please contact the secretariat no later than midday Monday 24 February if you would like to attend. The delegate will need to fund their attendance.
The Australian Allied Health Leadership Forum (AAHLF) is leading a strategy to develop a national approach to communication/messaging/engagement related to Allied Health to support broader workforce advocacy. Within the context of
- allied health’s voice is not influential enough;
- allied health as a modality is not deeply enough embedded in the system; and,
- the value of allied health practitioners is not consistently understood by the community
an externally facilitated workshop will be held in Melbourne on Tuesday 24 March, 8.30-12 noon. As a member of AAHLF we have 3 places available for members who would like to attend. Please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
