Facilitation coaching available on request

To support the implementation of the interprofessional change leadership programme, coaching is available to enable you to develop your confidence and capacity for facilitation. Research into effective interprofessional education has found that the capabilities of the facilitator are critical and that specific training is needed. To ensure the time, money and resources invested in delivering this programme are well utilised you are encouraged to take advantage of the facilitator coaching.

Margo Brewer, Director of Practice & Interprofessional Education at Curtin University, led the development of this leadership programme and has facilitated leadership development for interprofessional education and practice in Australia. Margo also completed the five-day ephic leadership programme delivered by the Centre for Interprofessional Education at the University of Toronto, which has been used as the model for this Australian programme.

Megan Smith and Franziska Trede, Charles Sturt University project team members, also have considerable experience in leadership development and health education.

A range of coaching options are available, including: A project team member modelling the facilitation of the full programme or co-facilitating the programme with you and/or your colleagues. Each option includes both pre-briefing and post-briefing reflective sessions.
