Are you Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander? Do you want to be part of future planning for our older people and Elders?
We are looking for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners (GP, health worker/practitioner, nurses, allied health), representatives from residential aged care facilities and academics. We welcome dynamic, future-thinking people who want to be part of improving the journey of healthy living and ageing on the North Coast.
Be part of an extensive regional strategic planning exercise focused on achieving an intergenerational, community-driven approach to healthy ageing. Healthy North Coast will bring key stakeholders together to support:
• the aged care sector to transition towards the future and look at demands of the ageing population
• the population transition towards ensuring older people are engaged and connected to their community, no matter where they live or their health status
• better integration of services through reshaping how we contribute to healthy living and ageing across the life course.
You will be a member of a busy reference group providing advice and your lived experiences to guide the work of the strategy.
What to expect?
A commitment of 5–10 hrs per month from July 2021 – June 2022, with a possibility of extending into the implementation team. Remuneration is available for those working outside of their position scope or in a voluntary capacity.
