Education and Events

Let us help you keep up to date with your continuing professional education requirements.

As a health professional you need a range of skills to competently deliver better health outcomes for patients, and provide confident mentoring and leadership to other health professionals.

HNECC PHN provides access to a range of Continuing Professional Development courses and events for health professionals. These range from one day seminars to clinical skills workshops and short courses that can earn you points for credit and meet the requirements for CPD.

We are using this site to provide access to some of our most recent and popular events. These are featured below:


CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

The global and national coronavirus situation is escalating rapidly.

Due to the growing concerns surrounding the public health impact of COVID-19, the Primary Health Network, in conjunction with HPMI and the HNE Public Health Unit, is hosting a series of information updates for primary care. These sessions provide current information on new developments and the management of the COVID-19 virus for GPs, Practice Nurses and Practice Staff. The sessions also include a panel discussion responding to questions from participants submitted via the Slido portal.


COVID-19 Update webinar # 3 - 24 March 2020

This event was livestreamed to more than 1,000 participants in Australia and overseas. In order to comply with the requirements relating to 'social distancing', and minimise the health risk to primary care health professionals, there were no attendees at this Update.

NOTE: This site includes documents and presentations from previous COVID-19 Updates held on 12 February and 10 March. Information included in these may be outdated and no longer current, and should therefore not be relied upon. Current and updated clinical information relating to the COVID-19 virus can be accessed at Hunter New England Health Pathways and Central Coast Health Pathways.



IMMUNISATION EDUCATION

With the COVID-19 response in full swing it’s more important than ever that frontline staff are protected for their own health and wellbeing and the safety of their patients. Nurse and midwife immunisers are needed to help vaccinate the district’s workforce as quickly as possible and keep our immunisation rates high.


The HNECC Primary Health Network partnered with Hunter New England and the Central Coast Local Health Districts to deliver a comprehensive, online Immunisation Education session tailored to all immunisation providers. The session wasl also sufficient for nurse and midwife immunisers to complete reauthorisation if required.

The Education Session was presented on 26 March via livestream only to observe the recommended social distancing and keep our vital health workforce safe. The webinar attracted more than 1,300 registered participants, and provided important information in a number of current areas including:

  • New cold chain management requirements
  • Influenza disease and vaccines
  • COVID-19 update
  • Adverse events following immunisation reporting
  • The current National Immunisation Program
  • The changes happening in this year’s school immunisation program

As in previous online events Slido was used to enable LIVE Streamers to ask questions of the presenters, and interact in real time.
