This online presentation convened by Jackie Robertson, Chair Business National Group, showcases opportunities for physiotherapists to obtain government funding while helping to address some of Australia’s greatest health challenges.
Governments around Australia are becoming aware of the important role that allied health plays in improving the health and well-being of the Australian community. They are increasingly looking to fund allied health providers in private practice to provide services across different areas of the health and social care system, including primary health care, aged care and disability services. This creates opportunities for physiotherapists to obtain funding to deliver new services and programs, either independently or as part of a multidisciplinary team.
This webinar will include strategies for identifying funding opportunities and developing funding proposals to maximise success.
