Professional Development

NAATSIHWP hosts a range of Professional Development events, programs, trainings and forums for our members regionally.

Our day-long Regional Professional Development Forums offer an opportunity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers, Health Practitioners and other interested health sector staff to come together to discuss regional priorities, develop new skills and network with key health stakeholders.

The NAATSIHWP CPD Program is designed to enhance Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers' and Practitioners' knowledge, skills, and abilities through active participation in both formal and informal learning. It aligns with previous and current activities NAATSIHWP has undertaken to grow and sustain the profession and workforce.

The Biennial NAATSIHWP Professional Development Symposium gathering is the largest on NAATSIHWP’s professional development calendar providing a platform for knowledge sharing, career enhancement, and networking for our Full and Student Members.

The Biennial NAATSIHWP National Conference gathering provides a significant opportunity to showcase and honour the deadly work of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Practitioners to a broader audience.
