Communities of Practice (CoP)

Brisbane South PHN is establishing new Communities of Practice (CoP) to support local health practitioners with similar special interest areas, including:

  • Allied Health Sole Practitioners CoP (Whole region)
  • Children and young people CoP (Inner South)
  • Chronic conditions CoP (West)
  • Multicultural health CoP (South East)
  • NDIS CoP (Outer South)
  • Older adults CoP (Bayside)

What is a community of practice?

A Community of Practice is a group of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do, and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly (Wenger–Trayner, 2015).

Why should you join a community of practice?

By joining one of our CoP you will be involved in determining the type of support you would most value from Brisbane South PHN. Busy practitioners need a one-stop-shop for:

  • Building your knowledge and expertise, while meeting other like-minded practitioners
  • Further developing your referral networks and relationships with other practices
  • Knowledge sharing between service providers and finding out about the latest evidence, resources and programs for your patients
  • Bringing any local issues/challenges/concerns to the table and having a group of peers to workshop ideas and advocate for change
