EOI open for chronic wound governance group

Brisbane North PHN is currently looking for GPs and practice nurses interested in joining the Brisbane North Chronic Wound Governance Group.

Operational since 2016, the Brisbane North Chronic Wound Governance Group aims to create transformative change resulting in better outcomes for people living with chronic wounds. It looks to achieve this through:

  • improving cross-sectorial collaboration between wound care providers in the North Brisbane and Moreton Bay region
  • identifying problematic conditions at a systems level and acting to leverage change
  • building capacity for engaging and developing solutions directly with individuals most affected
  • enabling, encouraging and supporting emergent innovation.

Current members of the Governance Group include chronic wound care providers from Metro North Hospital and Health Service, private organisations, non-government organisations, community care providers, residential aged care and general practice.

The PHN are also currently inviting aged care providers across community and residential aged care to participate in a program offering wound management education, with ongoing clinical support and onsite mentoring for your organisation.

For further information on the governance group or the wound management program contact Sector Collaboration Lead, Susan Cook, on susan.cook@brisbanenorthphn.org.au or 07 3630 7320.
