A visit from future healthcare leaders

In early May, Brisbane North PHN hosted an education event for a class of health administration students from Papua New Guinea.

The students, identified as future leaders of the Papua New Guinea health system, are currently studying a Graduate Certificate in Health Economics through Griffith University.

Members of the Brisbane North PHN team presented on topics ranging from primary healthcare commissioning, to the mental health and aged care systems operating in Australia.

The event was informative for both, with students gaining an appreciation of the primary care system and the PHN team gaining an insight into the Papua New Guinean health system.
