About this Event

About the workshop

You have been invited by the Western Metropolitan Partnership to participate in a workshop to align regional health priorities for the Western Metropolitan Partnership in their 2019 advice to the Victorian Government.

As a health practitioner, service provider or stakeholder in Melbourne's west, you have valuable insights and experiences to share.

A range of notable health initiatives have been pioneered in the region, which have played a significant role in developing the west’s health care system. This workshop will continue to build on this work, while identifying gaps and opportunities for future growth.

During the workshop, you’ll grow your understanding of existing programs and proposed areas for development, while contributing your views and experiences to collaborate and develop possible initiatives.

Nicole Bartholomeusz, Chief Executive of Cohealth, will provide an introduction and overview of health services and initiatives, outlining challenges and opportunities for better health in the west.
