Practice Partners Program - Round 1 Recipients

Health Issues Centre believes in the importance of consumer participation and person centred care. But we know it can be hard to secure executive support (and funding) for great ideas. So in October this year, we launched a new initiative Practice Partners Program.

The Practice Partners Program involves HIC working with health-related organisations by providing:

  • in-kind contributions of HIC staff time and involvement
  • direct funding (grant) for the project
  • or both of the above 

Key criteria is:

  • the involvement of consumers in project design and governance
  • new and innovative
  • scalable and replicable
  • a commitment to sharing the project broadly across the sector
  • small, rural and regional services prioritised
  • involvement of less-represented groups is encouraged 

While this round of applications closed on Wednesday, 2 November, this is an ongoing initiative at HIC and we aim to have a second round of funding in April 2017. So start thinking!

Successful applicants 

We are excited to announce four successful applicants in this round of funding. They are: 

  1. Grampians Integrated Cancer Service 
  2. Kyabram District Health Service
  3. Swan Hill District Health
  4. Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre

Congratulations to these organisations. For more information about each project, please read here
