1.Scholarships to improve regional health services

Health professionals in rural and regional Australia wanting to increase their skills are being encouraged to apply for financial support under the Australian Government’s Health Workforce Scholarship Program.

Officially launching the program today, Minister for Rural Health, Bridget McKenzie, said the Government was investing $11 million in the scholarships over three years from 2017-18 to help make health services more accessible for people living in country areas.

“The Health Workforce Scholarship Program provides support based on the needs of communities — whether for GPs, nurses, dentists or allied health professionals,” Minister McKenzie said.

“The program is delivering better outcomes for patients in rural and regional communities across Australia by supporting health practitioners to build up their professional skills.

“Support may be provided to health professionals already working in areas experiencing a shortage of services, or to those willing to move to areas where there is a lack of services.

“Importantly, most of the scholarships in the forthcoming round will include a ‘return of service’ obligation to ensure the recipients practise in rural and regional Australia for at least 12 months on completion of their studies.”

Geraldton resident and Indigenous Community Business Development Officer, Lenny Papertalk, is one health professional who has made the decision to apply for a scholarship.

“I will be applying for a scholarship to pursue a Masters of Social Work at University of Western Australia after having identified a high number of youth suffering from depression and mental illness within the Indigenous communities in Geraldton,” she said.

“I’m very committed to making a difference in rural health, so am hopeful of gaining this scholarship in order to improve health outcomes in my community.”

Tim Shackleton, CEO of Rural Health West in Western Australia, said the scholarship program would ultimately help to expand the range of health services available for people living in rural and remote communities in WA.

“The Health Workforce Scholarship Program will provide grants to postgraduate rural health professionals undertaking further study in the field of medicine, nursing or allied health,” he said.

“One-off bursary and support payments are available to help cover the cost of attending training and these payments can be put towards course fees, conference registrations, and accommodation and transports costs.”

The Health Workforce Scholarship Program is administered by a consortium of Rural Workforce Agencies (RWAs) led by Health Workforce Queensland. RWAs are located in all states and the Northern Territory, and all RWAs are included in the consortium.

The RWAs work closely with Primary Health Networks, local and state governments and other workforce planning groups to determine what skills are needed and where.

Further information about the Health Workforce Scholarship Program, including how to apply for a scholarship can be found on each of the Rural Workforce Agencies websites.

Young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across Queensland can now apply to participate in this year’s Queensland Indigenous Youth Leadership Program (QIYLP).

Deputy Premier, Treasurer and Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships Jackie Trad urged eligible people to apply and reap the benefits of QIYLP.

“This program is extremely beneficial to some of our youngest generations as it allows participants to develop their skills and gain valuable leadership experience,” Ms Trad said.

“QIYLP nourishes the ideas of young and emerging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leaders – allowing them to grow and create positive change in their communities.”

Minister for Child Safety, Youth and Women Di Farmer said the Queensland Indigenous Youth Leadership Program was a wonderful opportunity for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to develop leadership skills and learn about influencing change.

“The program brings together 40 participants from across the state to participate in a six-day residential program where not only will they develop leadership skills but they will also learn about the democratic processes in Queensland,” Ms Farmer said.

“The program is one of the country’s most prestigious and effective Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young leadership

programs.

“The young participants will undertake a range of experiences in QIYLP including leadership and professional development workshops, mentoring and networking opportunities and attend parliament workshops.”

“Many of these young people could be Indigenous or community leaders of the future and it is a great chance for them to have this type of experience under their belts as they embark into leadership roles,” Ms Farmer said.

“Applications are now open for those aged 18 to 25 years, for the six-day residential program that will take place in Brisbane from 30 June 2018 to 5 July 2018.

“There has already been more than 450 young people participate in QIYLP since its original inception in 2004 as a three day program, and what is even more pleasing is to see some returning as mentors and co-facilitators at this year’s program.

“I’d urge any young Aboriginal and Torres Strait young person to consider applying for the QIYLP.”

QIYLP is co-delivered by the Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women and the Queensland Parliamentary Service, and supported through a partnership with mining company Glencore.

Applications are open now and will close on 4 May 2018.

Call for Qualified group of facilitators to develop and deliver a training program that will be suitable for Aboriginal Health Workers and Aboriginal Health Practitioners (AHWs/AHPs)

The Benchmarque Group has been engaged by the Federal Department of Health to develop and deliver a training program that will be suitable for Aboriginal Health Workers and Aboriginal Health Practitioners (AHWs/AHPs) and clinicians promoting and/or providing cervical screening services to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander women.

As part of the project, The Benchmarque Group are looking to engage a suitably qualified group of facilitators who meet an appropriate clinical and cultural competence to support the delivery of the program materials. The programs will either be delivered by an individual facilitator who possesses all of the required competencies, or by two facilitators who meet the collective requirement. Delivery arrangements are flexible and can vary on a program by program basis.

The ideal candidate/s will:

  • hold a relevant clinical qualification (for example Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioner, Aboriginal Health Worker, Registered Nurse, or Enrolled Nurse)
  • identify as being Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person
  • hold a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (or be willing to commence this qualification).

To support successful candidates who do not meet the above criteria and to support ongoing workforce development, The Benchmarque Group are able to cover the cost of entry to the first cluster of units in the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.

Programs are to be scheduled and delivered across a diverse range of metropolitan, regional, rural and remote locations in all Australian States and Territories.

Reimbursement will be provided based on a daily rate of reimbursement with all travel, accommodation and out of pocket expenses covered.

For more information and to register an expression of interest, see contact details.

32 . Daybreak Coach Sydney

Team: Clinical

Hours: 7 am – 1 pm (Monday to Friday)

Location: Sydney HQ, with extensive opportunity to work remotely

Salary: $50,000 + superannuation + entitlements

Role: Daybreak Coach

We are a tech charity focused on building software that supports people to change their relationship with alcohol. We support the largest community in the country focused on this social problem and we continue to grow rapidly.

Our product, the Daybreak app, offers live text-based coaching alongside a supportive community and science-based exercises.

What is a Daybreak Coach?

A Daybreak Coach is a person that helps our members uncover and operationalise health related goals, build and maintain motivation, and identify barriers to overcome them; all of these with a focus on changing a member’s relationship with alcohol and enhancing wellbeing.

Daybreak Coaches are experienced and trained in our process of changing people’s relationship with alcohol. They do not limit conversations to alcohol consumption, but do not explore topics more suited to therapy or completely unrelated to alcohol behaviour change. When these topics come up, a Daybreak Coach will facilitate the right kind of support for our members.

Daybreak Coaches are not there to supplant crisis lines or clinics. When possible they will endeavour to direct members to this kind of support, but are not equipped to deliver it.

Responsibilities:

  • Maintain ongoing chat conversations with Daybreak members from 7:00 am to 1:00 pm Monday to Friday;
  • Respond to coaching requests in a timely manner;
  • Deliver proactive coaching invitations to members based on our pre-defined scenarios;
  • Administrate Daybreak “experiments” for our members;
  • Deliver feedback for continuous improvement;
  • Assist in the creation of scripts, guidelines, proactive scenarios and conversation prompts.

Suitable candidates will possess:

  • Regulatory framework requires a Certificate IV in Mental Health, Counseling, Drug and Alcohol, Social Work, or related fields;
  • At least 3 years experience in AOD behaviour change;
  • Excellent written english;
  • Organised and effective, capable of maintaining multiple clients in ongoing conversations;
  • Warmth and empathy;
  • Comfortable working at the fringe of mental health intervention technology.

Some of our benefits:

  • Be part of shaping the next chapter for Australia’s most unique charity;
  • Flexible, family friendly workplace;
  • Tax free salary options as a Health Promotion Charity (PBI) up to $15,900pa;
  • Generous remote working options;
  • Competitive, externally benchmarked salaries.
