The Benefits of Joining the Shoalhaven Allied Health Network
The Shoalhaven Allied Health Network was conceived in January 2014 and has enabled allied health, community health, complementary health and general practice staff to meet regularly in non formal contexts.
The success of the network to date has been the underpinning principles that each participant has become familiar with prior to attending a meeting.
These principles are listed below and each participant is encouraged to read through these principles prior to attending a meeting.
Shoalhaven Allied Health Network Meetings practice the following principles:
1. A strength based approach to meetings.
We recognise the strengths of each service provider and we encourage professional development and collaboration amongst health professionals
2. A solutions focused approach to barriers and problems.
Our meetings are directed towards finding solutions to assist our community with overcoming barriers to accessing health services. We encourage collaborative discussion between health care practices and professionals to create referral pathways that may assist access to health services
3. A patient centred approach to heath care
Participants attending networking sessions are encouraged to develop strategies that focus on improving the journey of patients through the health system
