Event description

Human lives are complex. Siloed service systems with a heavy emphasis on the expertise of discrete disciplines can struggle to respond to the multiple and intersecting problems in people’s lives. Working in partnership provides a pathway through this struggle. But like any new way of working, people working in partnership need to be equipped with the skills, resources, knowledge and mindsets required to do that work effectively. It is in this context that Health Justice Australia has designed its Partnership Foundations Program.  

The Partnership Foundations Program supports services and practitioners interested in pursuing health justice partnership to build and apply the essential foundations for success. The program draws upon Health Justice Australia’s experience supporting the development and maintenance of complex partnerships, and dives deeper into the recommendations contained in the Building blocks for health justice partnership development resource, supporting practitioners to translate the evidence of effective partnering into practical, achievable partnership development strategies and processes that fit their own unique context and needs.    

The program consists of three, 3.5-hour online workshops over the following dates (your registration covers you for all three dates):

  • Session 1: 6 June 2022, 10am-1:30pm (AEST)
  • Session 2: 20 June 2022, 10am-1:30pm (AEST)
  • Session 3: 4 July 2022, 10am-1:30pm (AEST)

Between the workshops, attendees will apply what they’re learning through guided and practical exercises, and have access to Health Justice Australia’s partnership experts and peer participants for troubleshooting and support. 

Upon registration you will be provided with a unique link to the program's online hub which contains a suite of resources to support your participation.

Attendees will also be added to the national network of health justice partnership practitioners. 

To support the highly participatory nature of this program, places are limited to 10 attendees.
