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.
