Practice Manager Conference, Tas

Good Practice

Practice manager conference

Ochre Health staff in Tasmania were amongst those seizing the opportunity to attend the HR+ Practice Managers' Conference in Launceston.

“It’s always a stellar line up of industry experts and a chance to network with 60+ practice managers from across the state, learning from each other’s experiences, and this year’s program did not disappoint,” said Ochre Intern Support Officer, Molly Rumbold.

Practice Managers from across Tasmania (and beyond) met to explore their own potential, discover resources available to advance their education, their practices and to improve the health of patients. They also learnt about programs and grants to assist and grow the rural workforce.

"The leadership coaching from world class experts and personal growth sessions were inspiring and valuable beyond words, and we can’t wait to attend the next one!" said Molly.

Professional development for practice managers

HR+ in Tasmania, along with Rural Workforce Agencies across Australia, are committed to support practices to be the best they can be so they can provide great services to their communities. HR+ has the philosophy where we believe that if a medical or allied health practice is managed well, then retention of staff and in particular, GPs, will be more successful, which is a win-win for everyone. This program is delivered under Commonwealth funding as a Rural Workforce Agency initiative.

From recruiting new team members to assisting practice managers implement health and wellbeing programs, HR+ offers a wide range of practice support including State-wide conferences and professional development events, regional networking and forums, practice manager orientation programs, the practice managers' email network, preparation for general practice accreditation, support with MBS item numbers, PIPs and SIPs, workforce solutions and practice transformation, practice-based tailored workshops and business development, including the AWARE Tool for General Practice.

Part of our support role is to stimulate learning by serving as a conduit for authentic communication, mentoring, coaching, self-reflection and to help people improve their practice by providing a forum to identify solutions to common problems and a process to collect and evaluate best practices.

One of our main annual events is hosting a state-wide Practice Managers Conference. Our conferences are highly interactive and are not only about talks and presentations, they're about the community and the people who attend them.

Our conferences provide a rare opportunity for practice managers, clinicians, receptionists, nurses, GPs and allied health professionals, both in the primary health and the allied health space, to come together collaboratively across the state, in the same place, at the same time. An environment such as this provides the perfect platform to network, form partnerships and exchange knowledge with both peers and people from connected industries. Our aim for practice managers is to:

  • Expand knowledge: learn, improve and sharpen knowledge
  • Gain and share new ideas and best practices
  • Learn about the latest innovations and insights
  • Meet influencers and industry experts face to face
  • Make new contacts and stay connected with friends and colleagues
  • Team building and break out comfort zones
  • Re-energise and feel valued and appreciated!!

There is nothing more satisfying than to hear from delegates who excitedly and genuinely say:

“This conference is the best I have ever been to!!” Sharon Gill, Emerge Allied Health
