Package Includes

Face-to-face Workshop

This package includes a one-day face-to-face interactive workshop, for up to 30 attendees. The AGPAL & QIP Education and Training Team will plan and coordinate the workshop, to be conducted at a date and location of your choice.

Delivered by an expert facilitator, this interactive workshop is tailored to your organisation’s requirements and includes a complete take home workbook for all attendees.

Through facilitator led small group work and whole group discussions, practical examples, case studies, tools and resources will support a number of implementation initiatives and take away learnings for all attendees.


This package includes a series of three one-hour interactive training webinars, with topics including:

  • Embed Continuous Quality Improvement
  • Improve Health Service Delivery
  • Adoption of More Person-Family Centred Approach to Service Provision
  • Promote Comprehensive, Coordinated and Individualised Care
  • Enhance Communication Between Providers, and
  • Monitoring and Improving Governance Procedures.

The delivery date of these webinars will be determined in consultation with the AGPAL & QIP Education and Training Team.


The type of learning activities we offer include the combined use of multimedia and multiple instruction techniques, e.g. face-to-face interactive workshops, webinars, interactive e-Learning, self-directed learning.

Participants who attend a face-to-face training event or complete an e-Learning module or webinar, in full and without assessment, are awarded a statement of attendance.

Participants who complete a training program in full and meet the requirements of that training (e.g. pass an assessment where required), are issued a statement of completion.

Each learner can then use the certificates for applying for CPD points from their relevant peak body organisation.
