Who should attend: CEOs, Executive/General Managers, Procurement Managers, Allied Health Managers from Community Health organisations or their funders/partners.

It is getting more challenging to manage contracts in the community health sector. The pandemic has dramatically changed how community and health services are delivered, and spawned COVID-19 testing clinics and mental health programs. Funding needs to be managed from multiple sources, including NDIS, home care and Medicare. Corporate and clinical governance demands are increasing.

Please join our panel to explore topical contract management issues arising in the community health sector. Using several case studies, we will cover new and emerging contract challenges, as well as contracting principles to minimise risk and liability:

  • Client service agreements – tips to develop them and roll them out
  • Funding agreements – traps to watch out for before you accept funding
  • Health practitioner agreements – who is providing services to who?
  • Partnering, consortiums and memorandums of understanding (MOUs) - tips for avoiding disputes
  • Case studies of agreements for major support programs

The webinar will build your understanding of contracts in Community Health Organisations, and provide tips for developing and managing contracts.

Joining us will be Jonathan Teh, Felicity Iredale and Jaqueline Wilson from Russell Kennedy’s Health team.
