Communities of Practice Hub

Communities of practice are groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do, and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly. The term “community of practice” is relatively new, even though the concept is age-old.

WA Primary Health Alliance facilitates several communities of practice to share learning and build the capacity of the primary health sector in WA. Most communities are 'closed' groups, with members invited because they are receiving funding from a common stream, or are members of the same reference group.

Please contact jane.harwood@wapha.org.au if you are interested in joining an active community of practice or if you are interested in setting up your own to support the field of primary health.

    WAPHA recently supported a group of people to become trainers in Aboriginal Mental Health First Aid, enabling them to take their new knowledge and skills back into their communities. This Community of Practice is a private page to help those training participants to stay connected and continue to share their learning and experiences as they apply their learning.


    If you are interested in learning more about this program or other Aboriginal health initiatives supported by WAPHA, please contact Annie Young, Program Lead for Aboriginal Health on annie.young@wapha.org.au or visit the Integrated Team Care project page.
