Paediatric Clinical Conversations,
Community and Content
Megan and Cathy have significant clinical experience, both have worked over seas, lead high performing teams, created and delivered programs, participated in working parties and reference groups and presented nationally and internationally. They are familiar with the Australian Allied Health scene, the NDIS, client experience, services, funding schemes and they have been around long enough to map trends.
Their adventures in recent years identified 3 main clinical challenges in Australia.
The entrepreneurial brains sparked, a commitment to bring great Australian clinical conversation, content and community was ignited. Team Talk has been running for years. In 2020 sales went nuts, the program re branded and re formed, let us introduce Therapy Team Talk. It now boldly celebrates the local clinical heros, provides interactive learning conversations, shares resources and templates and in time will host remarkable online events.
The best of Aussie clinical awesome is yet to come.
