Your chance to transform our health system

Research grants
Here’s your chance to make a difference. 

Consumers Health Forum of Australia (CHF) in association with Western Sydney Primary Health Network invites you to consider applying for a unique leadership opportunity: Collaborative Pairs Australia.

Collaborative Pairs marks the beginning of a transformation in health leadership, one where consumers and service providers work in genuine partnership to lead person-centred health care, services and systems.

The initiative is designed to enable health professionals (clinicians and service providers) and consumers to develop capacity in working collaboratively to influence and transform the health system.

Collaborative Pairs Australia is a partnership between CHF and the King’s Fund, an independent charity in the UK to trial and evaluate the King’s Fund flagship program, Collaborative Pairs in the Australian context.

This National Demonstration Trial is being co-ordinated by CHF and funded by four Primary Health Networks (Western NSW, Western Sydney, North Western Melbourne and South Eastern Melbourne) and the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care.

This program will appeal to consumers and health service providers who are excited by the opportunity to participate as a pair in a leadership development program that will facilitate transformational change within the health system.

As part of the National Demonstration Trial, Collaborative Pairs is being implemented in four PHN regions in the first instance: Western NSW, Western Sydney, South Eastern Melbourne and North Western Melbourne. This is your opportunity to be in the first cohort to undertake this program in Australia.
