Advocacy for rural Australians: PACFA joins National Rural Health Alliance

Membership of the alliance will mean PACFA is represented on the organisation’s Council, with the opportunity to have input into the alliance’s policy work and views.

My PACFA membership gives me a sense of community, of connection to colleagues and a space for professional belonging and identity. PACFA and its members provide support when I need it, whether it is ethical advice, a high standard of registration and training and professional recognition, access to private health rebates, friendship and sharing of professional knowledge, referral of clients, accessible, affordable and high quality CPD, and the collegiality to sustain the work we do.
