Primary Health Care workforce support is a priority of the Adelaide PHN. Peer support and networking initiatives supporting this priority are listed below.
Interdisciplinary Health Practitioner Network (IHPN)
Adelaide PHN is proud to partner with the Interdisciplinary Health Practitioner Network (IHPN), a pilot project developed by MHPN and AHPA, to establish practitioner networks, each with a focus on multimorbidity. The network will meet up to four times a year to support local practitioners from different disciplines to collaborate and network, helping to develop relationships, increase understanding of each other’s expertise, improve referral pathways and, ultimately, patient outcomes.
