Creating a healthier, better connected Gippsland.

Training & Events

Health professionals and others working in Gippsland’s general practices and health services can access education and training opportunities through the Gippsland PHN Education program. The program involves the coordination of a variety of educational opportunities, in various formats such as: face-to-face, webinar, workshops, small group learnings, network meetings and forums.

Gippsland PHN offers Continuing Professional Development (CPD) opportunities for primary health care and other health professionals, supporting them to maintain professional standards, influence clinical practice, and develop skills and expertise. The Education Program also provides individuals with assistance in finding courses and events to meet Continuing Professional Development requirements.

Education events are planned in response to identified needs and priorities, either through the Needs Assessment, feedback from general practice and the regional services program and feedback from service providers in the primary care sector, clinical councils, our community advisory committee, or in response to emerging issues.

Gippsland PHN is actively involved in the design and delivery of education and training events for clinical staff that meet both the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) professional development requirements.
