In 2015, GP Synergy in collaboration with TAFE OTEN, developed a nationally recognised Diploma in Practice Management for Aboriginal Medical Services to meet the specific needs of practice managers and staff working in Aboriginal medical service facilities.
The customised diploma recognises the important role of practice management in the effective functioning of primary healthcare facilities and the complex social, cultural, and clinical dimensions that need to be coordinated and work in harmony for successful Aboriginal health service delivery.
In 2015, fourteen staff completed the diploma from Aboriginal medical services in Tamworth, Inverell, Moree, Coonamble, Wellington and South-western Sydney.
