Committed to Education

Allied health professionals need to be effective leaders within high functioning teams so that optimal patient care can be achieved. This 6-month practical program will improve your confidence and performance in all areas of leadership you will need and choose throughout your career.

Being a leader is not just about taking on official leadership roles or management positions. Good leadership has far-reaching implications across all components of our health systems, not only for high quality clinical outcomes but also for excellence in research and educational outcomes.

The new FLASH program was developed by clinicians for clinicians. Our teaching faculty have expertise in designing and delivering leadership development programs and are skilled in clinical education. This stimulating program will be highly interactive and showcase many health professional leaders’ experiences and opportunities to upskill to enact positive change in the workplace.

Your ability as a leader will be fostered in many ways including: examining and reflecting on your own behaviours and relationships with others; exploring ways to build effective teams; developing techniques to positively influence others; approaching conflict constructively; better understanding the health systems in which we work; interacting with executive leaders…and many more.

FLASH is developed around the Australian Health Leadership LEADS Framework.

A past participant said:

“Participating in the FLASH allied health gave me a broader understanding of the vital part each allied health profession brings to the overall health system. Being able to engage with others outside of my profession has widened my view of how I can lead change no matter what role I am in, and the importance of collaboration to continually provide the best care to our consumers.”
