About Advanced Primary Health Care Centres
The Faculty of Health Sciences has an international reputation for developing innovative models of primary care that are interdisciplinary and patient focused. The Faculty also leads the way on innovative partnerships - with government and the private sector, developing new health workforce roles (such as Nurse Practitioners) and integrating clinical service and student education.
UQ Health Care centres will use an interdisciplinary, patient-focused model of care, which represents a new approach to health service delivery. It is one that has been recognised for its effectiveness at the joint UQ-Queensland Health Inala Primary Care Centre, which received the 2009 RACGP General Practice of the Year Award .
